  • A wonderful place and very well maintained. Too bad they have such a person at the door dealing with the public who want to enter the cloister, and have to stick to the sullen and unpleasant treatment that he gives you for wanting to buy tickets for the visit. Such an unpleasant lord should be excluded from the relationship with the public, for his good and for that of the visitors. I find it incredible that they do not know their leaders their lack of empathy and their taste for snub. you should have him look at it. Once the ticket office is passed it is wonderful, the place and the magnificent explanations that give the guides on the guided tour. A superb cloister, which also helps you to see and feel, not only adults, I have seen them worry about children, for which the visit is more difficult. Of course recommended in everything but in the box that is expendable.

  • On Friday, November 1, we made a visit. The guide Rodrigo was fantastic. It illustrates everything I recited cleft several times but never as the guide explained. If you're going, I recommend you do it with Rodrigo

  • Very interesting tour of the cloister followed by Sexta (Liturgy of the Hours) in the Church. The guide (in Spanish) was very knowledgeable and quoted poetry beautifully. His description of the artwork and history was illuminating. Thoroughly enjoyed my trip. Thank you!
  • Loved the guide he can answer anything, plus the place is really interesting.
