This was a reasonably pretty and peaceful place. There is a limited amount of information and examples of everyday life. However the real highlight was the chapel, near the end of our visit, which is truly beautiful and where it is worth spending some time...More

Really not worth visiting except for church, that while it is in a state of some degeneration still is interesting. Bypass this one unless you have time to kill.

How incredible is the altar of this church. We spent almost an hour there just watching it. Than we had to leave because of closure time at 13.30 h. Make sure to remember that most churches close between 13h & 17h.

To be quite honest, we stumbled into this monastery because it was included in our Granada card and we needed to rest our sore feet. Thank God, literally! The overall monastery is a living one and suitably spartan, but the church which come around the...More

It is very impressive. It is big and richly adorned. The rest of the building is quite plain with a lot of paintings. A quick look around these part is sufficient.

Beautiful structure with incredible architecture. We took our time and walked around the entire place. Make sure NOT to miss the church part that is towards the end. Amazing house of prayer and worship worth every penny to enter

Not that I was aware of, I didn't see any type of tourist accommodation inside the monastery.
