Discover picturesque landscapes at Monasterio de Piedra, a tranquil and scenic park that surrounds a partially ruined ancient monastery. Its deep, reflective lakes, caves, lush forest, and waterfalls, including one over 50 m (164 ft) high, make it an oasis in an otherwise arid area of Spain. Listen to birds singing and try to spot the native deer, rabbits, and boars. Head to the monastery, founded in 1194, and learn how the first piece of chocolate made in Europe was created there. Some of the paths in the park are tricky and may not be suitable for those with mobility issues. Our Zaragoza journey website makes visiting Monasterio de Piedra and other Zaragoza attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

The park is very well maintained and the visit to the monastery very interesting. We took out the tickets a day before online because there was something better coming out of price. If you take them out on the same day there is no discount.
Maybe you didn't know... but it's a private property. It's recommended to buy the tickets via Internet. The gardens are impressive. I recommend doing the whole tour including the cave Iris. It's impressive how many different waterfalls are there. Enjoy
Beautiful old monastery with large rooms and huge hallways. Perfect for a weekend getaway but also fits for a family. Parking near and cafeteria/pub and restaurant open even on Christmas day. Views are amazing around the place.
