“Try and go to Mass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

To hear the Holy Sisters singing Mass in the Chapel is amazing. It is as near heaven as I think i will ever get in this life. An unmissable experience. Mass on High Days and Sundays is at 10.30. GO!

“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

The town of Tordesillas is close to Valladolid and is a fantastic stop over en route to Santander or Bilbao. We were touring Spain in a motor home and stayed at the El Astral site which was just brilliant. The town is fascinating and very easy to get around. The monastery is in fantastic condition and the tour - although totally in Spanish - was very interesting. The history of the monastery is well documented throughout the tour and the shop has some wonderful literature. It has been referred to as the 'Alhambra' of the North. A very special place to visit.

“Unexpected!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Escorted tours only, and despite our lack of Spanish, and the tour guides lack of English, we found it all very interesting. Far more to see than I thought there would be.

Full of history with astonishing “medieval baths” and a marvelous chapel. The guided visit is very informative. Do not miss
