Beautiful monastery. Beautiful cloisters. Peaceful place. I wish it was not such a gray and misty day. I can imagine it would look this much more magnificent in a brighter day.

This attraction should be higher up the list, as it truly is a magnificent building. From the attractive facade and pretty courtyard with orange trees, to the ornate majestic altar and sacristy. You will see it listed as Monasterio de San Jerónimo. Well worth making...More

The monastery may be a little off the beaten track, but it well worth the effort to find. I saw quite a few churches in Spain, but this was far and away the best, with that magnificent altarpiece.

The inside of the church is magnificent. One could stay here for hours just looking at all the details of the altarpiece. I have been in hundreds of churches and this one has to be one of the most splendid I have seen. Do not...More

Check the opening times, its closed in the afternoon from 13.00 until 16.00. Worth the 4 euros admission as the interior is simply stunning. It should not be confused with the Basilica de San Juan de Dios nearby. Many of the photos on the Basilica...More

Very quiet place for tourist. We were the only two there when we visited. The place is a bit run down but the church inside is well worth the price we paid.

If you've already been to the Cathedral and Capilla Real, you may feel that you've had your fill of Spanish Baroque. But this is unique - an overwhelming level of decorative detail crammed onto every available surface and corner.
