This is a surreal place to visit and appreciate the history that made Spain and the world speak Spanish.

We survived the 1 hour guided tour in Spanish with our children but appreciated the opportunity to visit this wonderful place. The church and sacristry are splendid, whilst seeing the significant books was very interesting. Only guided tours ensures a more intimate and civilised visit.

Clearly an important place and the tour was well executed, the biggest issue for us is that it all in Spanish and while it had some placards in English all the dialogue was Spanish. If you are not a Spanish speaker this may be just...More

It's a large (very large) monastery, with lots of chambers and rooms. It seems you have to go with a tour, but for some reason we ended up inside and we were able to explore it on our own. It's quite packed with people and...More

The one on the hill (Suso) is more mystical and older. Make sure to visit both. There are other monasteries in the area that are also worth a visit if you have more time. Definitely a nice break from all the wineries of La Rioja.
