Monasterio San Pedro El Viejo - Review
This is an old Benedictine monastery built during the 12th century that was later presented in a Romanesque design. It is also known as the Saint Peter the Old monastery due to its Moorish Occupation essence since it was built during the time when the Moorish Occupation was prevalent.
It is also one of the most important monuments of the state and has been declared as a National Cultural Monument since 1886. The former Chapter Room also known as the Pantheon is the place where you can find the tombs of two famous kings- Alfonso I and his brother Ramiro II.
There are 2 main parts of the building- the chapel and the cloister and the notable artwork belong to different eras.
- Altarpiece of the Virgin of Hope (16th Century)- Renaissance period
- Altarpiece of Saints Just and Pastor (17th Century)- Baroque period
- Altarpiece of the Annunciation (15th – 16th century)- Gothic
- 13th Century murals and wooden choir stalls of the 17th Century.

Monasterio San Pedro El Viejo, Huesca Reviews
Maravillosa Iglesia románica. Visita obligada si pasas por Huesca. Preciosos retablos e imaginería. Los capiteles del claustro son para fotografiarlos uno a uno.
Genia. Una joya en todo tanto histórico, como artístico y religioso. La guía superamable y muy atenta, cinco estrellas para ella también.
Visita obligada. Joya del románico donde aún se conservan un fresco y algunos capiteles originales en su claustro. También se encuentran los restos de Alfonso I el Batallador y su hermano Ramiro II. Se echan en falta carteles informativos, por ejemplo, de inscripciones y de relieves que hay el el propio claustro.
Claustro magnífico. Visita complicada
