Beautiful monastery, must see in La Rioja. The chant books are real relics, also an ark from the XI century. Everything is very well preserved, so please be respectful! I saw people touching drawings hundred years old... 🤦♂️ 4/5* only because it needs some work regarding accessibility. There are elements like wooden ramps that do not modify the architecture, so preservation is not an excuse.
In my opinion the hotel conveys a Peacefull and relaxing vibe. Rooms are Large and Elegant from other time yet well kept and charming. Nice and warm service to make one comfortable.
