This 12th century palace was converted into a monastery by the English noblewoman Leonora de Plantagenet. After walking about it’s evocative , stark structures and visiting the Romanesque cloister, the extraordinary and unique Medieval Fabric Museum comes as a surprising change. Here , visitors can admire all types of clothes and fabrics that came to light with the Napoleonic sacking of the Royal tombs that are in the church
The guided tour was one of the best we’ve ever taken anywhere in Spain. The Monastery itself is worth the trip, it’s full of hidden gem. A must
