1100 metres high up the mountains This monastery is well worth a visit. When we landed 5 birds of prey were flying above our heads circling round and round. This monastery was built after the Spanish prayed to end the day, the sun came up and the Spanish evicted the moors. 360 degrees views just stunning. Original lamps from end of 14th century, original tiles Santiago on a horse!

Worth a detour between Seville and Zafra!
On a tiny little winding country road up to a high viewpoint next to the monastery. The building was closed, but the views of the surrounding country side were spectacular!

The Monastery is very interesting. It is perched on top of the highest point in the province of Badajoz. The man who was there to give us tickets and information was not good at public relations. Seemed strange to get such poor treatment at a monestary. There were also scads of flying earwigs all around the outside of it. The views are fantastic from up there, but the ground around it was covered in goat poop.

Worth the 9 km drive on a narrow but good road to reach the monastery perched on 1100m high mountain. Spectacular views, beautiful old fortified monastery from 1300’s. At €1 entry very cheap.

We saw a sign for this place on the motorway and decided to give it a look. The road is narrow and winding but perfectly navigable. On arrival at top of the highest point in Badajoz province we found this fantastic building looking out over the most amazing views. Surprisingly, we were the only people there and for 1 euro each had the whole place to ourselves. To be frank, one of these old monasteries is much like any other but the location of this one is what makes it stand out. There is also a cafe bar which was open but also empty.

The strange thing was that the whole building was literally covered with millions of dead earwigs! There was a smell of insecticide which explains why they were all dead but my Spanish wasn't good enough to understand what the man at the entrance was telling me about it when I asked him.

Well worth a look.

A nice visit to the monastery. The explanatory panels were concise and will be very useful to students in the third cycle of primary school and the first cycle of ESO. The place is very interesting. To raise some objections, it would be about the need to clean the rooms of dead insects. But it is worth going up and seeing the landscape from there.
