My experience was wonderful. The tour guide was wonderful she made you feel like you were back in time of the Kings and Royals.
Fine example of Spanish history explained carefully and fully.
Beautiful working monastery. Can only be visited with a guide.
Took the tour today, paid 6 Euros and was told by the staff our audio would be in English...possibly a language error, but the audio was in Spanish and our guide had no interest in explaining anything to my friend and I in English. Taking pictures was not allowed. The monastery was a beautiful historic site but I left feeling I had just wasted my time. Our money was refunded after our complaint.
We just asked the guide if she spoke any English and after each section in Spanish she took us aside and in good English filled us in. We still talk about this amazing experience. Whether all guides would do that or we just struck lucky, it was wonderful . All those ancient clothes in almost original condition . Chilling especially with the stories of subterfuge and murder behind them. Recommend.
