Having submitted a review about Parador de Jarandilla and referring to emperor Carlos V, it is mandatory to visit Yuste Monastery to better understand his history. This site was his official residence at the end of his life.

It might just be me but I like attractions like this. The huge galleries and museums of the world can be hard work due to the massive scale, but museums such as this - limited scale; single theme - can be so much more rewarding...More

A restored monastery could go either way, this was a beautiful find. Beautiful drive, lots of unexpected historical significance, and just the right amount of restoration. Also not crowded so one can enjoy. Don't miss the relics and the crypt. The overall experience-well worth it.

Lovely building in a superb setting. Not much info about Carlos one of the most famous kings of Spain. The setting is superb. However the plae had its toilets locked in the heights of summer! Bagnos/Aseos cerrados en Julio???! Que desastre
