  • 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
