“CLOSE TO HEAVEN”

Monasterio de Leyre
Reviewed 26 February 2013

A great place to visit. Please if you can do not miss the choir. It's very close to Pamplona: the place itself as the location worth a visit.

This is a place out of the ordinary that is worth a visit and a definite stop for everyone who is interested in ecclesiastical architectural.

Spent time visit this place and well worth seeing from historical point of view. Great place to take lunch for a day trip.

The monastery is impressive, and so it's its location and history. We visited it on a very windy evening and it was very uncomfortable, the wind nearly knocked me down. I didn't like that the guided tour was with a large group of visitors, you couldn't hear the guide, and she sounded like a parrot repeating a too boring for her story, she seemed to be in a hurry to be done. No English but visitors with no Spanish are handed out printed info.
If the visit finished when the monks have their prayers in the church, yo're invited to stay and hear their Gregorian chants.
The monk in the souvenir shop was very jolly and nice.
