Spent on winter night in this lovely building with loads of character and charm. Would love to visit this place in summertime as the internal garden is wonderful. Note that you can drive to the entrance via a side street.

Pleasant enough with a few interesting things to view. However you have to go in a group of 50 people and receive a commentary in Spanish only. No photographs are allowed in any of the indoor areas.

We enjoyed our visit to the Royal Monastery of Guadalupe. It should be said, though, that the only way to tour the sumptuous interior is on a 'guided visit' that is only offered in Spanish. As such, we should have done a bit more reading...More

The tour is only in Spanish - a pity! But there is plenty to see with many labels in English so it is worth it.
