It is a classic when traveling through Aragon. The Monasterio de Piedra is an essential place that you should not miss. Its natural route is one of the most beautiful in the world, with its waterfalls, streams, caves, in the shade of ancient trees and lakes that look like mirrors. A walk that is very appealing in summer when the Piedra River refreshes the view and the atmosphere. It has also recovered its daily visits. So there is no excuse not to visit it.
What will you see in the Monastery of Piedra?
The visit to the Monastery has two main parts. On the one hand, the Cistercian style monastery, scene of the history of Spain and the world. You will have a monumental tour around the monastery, a visit to the Chocolate exhibition. (The Monastery was the first place in Europe to taste chocolate) and to the museum of the D.O. of Calatayud.
Outside the monastery you will find the Park of the Monasterio de Piedra. We have no words to describe it. It is a paradise of stone and water, an oasis, a landscape created and well cared to escape from time. The park is a paradise of peace and an inexhaustible source of fun for the little ones.
Where is it located?
The Monastery is in Nuévalos, in the region of Calatayud. It is 100 km from Zaragoza and 200 km from Madrid.
