Monasterio De Lashuelgas Reviews & Ratings
Wonderful and great collection. No photos allowed
We went there to see the pendon of the Almohad empire during the battle of las navas de tolosa (1212). It marked the end of the empire and the decadence of Al Andalus. It also marked the end of our Andalusian road trip. The old abbaye ceiling is indeed a remarkable mudjerar artwork. The monastery organises a 1h guided tour in Spanish. We had enough chance to have a polyglot guide who was keen to translate. Appart from the gigantic pendon the monastery holds the tomb of Alphonse VIII and a mural paint of the battle itself. Entries are free Wednesday and Thursday afternoon after 16 for EU citizens.
Very nice monastry.. worth the effort walking to it from city center
Great place to visit if in Burgos.
My experience was wonderful. The tour guide was wonderful she made you feel like you were back in time of the Kings and Royals.
