“Amazing monastery!”

Monasterio de Santa Maria de La Vid
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in La Vid
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 February 2017

This is one of the most amazing monasteries I have ever visited or stayed in! You would never imagine that such a jewel is hidden in such a small village. I strongly recommend visiting the monastery, attending mass in its church, etc. It's also a very nice and quiet place to stay (don't expect luxury conditions, but it's a really peaceful place to relax, take your time to think, pray if you want to, etc.). It's a bit cold in Winter, obviously. the meals are home-made, and better than I expected.

The day we went the tour was only in Spanish so we understood very little. It was still very interesting and beautiful and the price was inexpensive. The only other couple on the tour would interpret a few of the highlights for us which we appreciated. Hotel El Lagar de Isilla is located next door with great accommodations, prices, and wine. The tapas bar was excellent. Most of the staff spoke good English. We plan to return.

The most peaceful and tranquil place you can find on earth. I visited this place 14 years ago and I always coming back. I have recommended to people and they were fascinated with this place. This place is quiet, has many outdoor activities to do, cycling, hiking, swimming and the most important relaxing from the rest of the world. the food is amazing and for the price of accommodation with all inclusive policy is just perfect. The inside of the monastery is so impressive, the architecture and grandiosity of the building make you feel the only one there, just perfect. The frailes are so kind and welcoming that make you feel very comfortable. Yes, it is a Monastery but you don't need to be religious to visit this place and the rules are very flexible and welcome to everyone and every religion.

This was next to our hotel so we went to look but unfortunately it was closed. However, it is beautiful and the grounds are nice to walk around. Check out the birds etc in the cages around the back - ducks, chickens, peacocks etc. worth a visit.

It was a casual visit, we didn't expect to find so valuable remains in this unknokwn Monastery. The Father explained us every single detail during the tour. We were delighted. It's highly recommended to visit Santa Maria De la Vid Monastery.
