It was closed!
Jun 2021
We had planned to visit this place, and on Google maps it showed that opening time was at 11:00 am. Since we were early, we waited for about 20 minutes and the doors remained close after 11:00 am. We knocked on the door a few times, but no one was there.

Historic hotel
Sep 2019 • Couples
Definitely recommend a visit.
Hotel is situated about 15mins walk from the centre following the Roman aqueduct making it an ideal base. The hotel is atmospheric and the dinner we had was excellent.
The staff especially on reception were really friendly giving great advice on where to visit.
Be aware that most places of interest in the area are closed on a Monday.

Well worth the €2
May 2018 • Couples
It’s well worth a look and the €2 entrance fee. The ornate plaster on the outside walls, a feature of buildings in Segovia, of which there are some 300 designs is amazing.
The nuns are still in residence and although a closed order, a shop selling biscuits they make is available to see.

It was easy for us as we were staying right there, but it is worth seeking out and visiting. Beautiful architecture!

Beautiful building
Aug 2017 • Couples
We were staying right next door to here so decided to take a look around. Gorgeous building as they all are in Segovia, this monastery is a little out of the way from the main areas but well worth a visit.

beautiful
Apr 2017 • Couples
This monastery was only recently opened to the public. I visited with my girlfriend and we loved it. The moorish gilded woodcraft of the ceilings is beautiful. I think the guided tours are only in Spanish, but to be honest it doesn't matter cause the lady spoke a lot of nonsense. Nevertheless we were delighted with what we saw even if the explanations weren't very good. I highly recommend a visit to this site!

Not in the center, ideally if you want to do a stop & go with the best refill :-).

Nice pork, and it was all very tasty.

A little bit out of the way
Feb 2017 • Couples
It is a bit away from the Centre, but if you stay in the hotel with the same name, it is just around the corner. It fits with the order of Poor Clares, the nuns that still live there. For 2 euro a lady opens all the doors.

Must be visited !!
Nov 2016 • Friends
This is one of the places you cant miss in Segovia as many tourists have no idea about this lovely monastry.It dates back to XIV century during the reigned of
Charles IV and what I called my attention was the intense and lively coulors on the ceiling beams which still stay the same from XIV century.
When you get into the church there is a door just on the right side of the main chapel and ring the bell to be opened by the local tourist who will show you part of the monastry and explain the different rooms( Spanish language).
The price is 2€ only
I was amazed by this place where 6 nuns still are living.
The best time to visit is from 10:00 to 12:00 although it is open untill 14:00 from Monday to Friday.
You can take as many pictures as you like without flash.
I hope I can be of help to some travellers my comments about this lovely and unknown place.

Check the hours
Aug 2016 • Friends
We went in the afternoon and found it closed, but enjoyed the exterior. Not worth the walk if it's closed, so check the hours. A sign in the door advised that it's open Wednesday to Sunday 10:00-2:00 and Tuesday to Saturday 4:00-6:30 (closed Sunday afternoon, all day Monday, and Tuesday morning).

It's near the end of the above-ground portion of the aquaduct. About a 15 minute walk from the main portion of the aquaduct.
