Route of the Monastery

Travel around monastic lands. Experience worship and culture. Hear the murmur of the bells. Finally, stop along the way and feel the history of the walls, breathing in the magic in the hallows.

Day 1
Departure. Sunday.
Visitors can not miss the two cultural reference points in the city: San Polo and San Saturio with their poplar walks along the riverside. Less than 15 kilometres from the capital Soria, Garray is also a highlight, where the Numancia settlement is located with its archaeology room. Burgo de Osma and the nearby Río Lobos Nature Reserve are located in the surrounding area. You may visit the Royal Monastery of Veruela " a future Parador " on the way the to Olite, located at the foot of Moncayo Nature Reserve.
Day 2
Monday.
The town provides the chance to discover the Palace of the Monarchs of Navarre, Santa María la Real church, San Pedro Apóstol church and the Plaza Carlos III. The Navarre Wine and Vineyard Museum is also a highlight, located in the same square as the Parador. A visit to the nearby Cistercian La Oliva Abbey is worth the effort. La Oliva was raised to Abbey status in 1948 after its restoration.
Day 3
Tuesday.
Located to the north of Cinco Villas, it preserves its mediaeval atmosphere in the small steep streets in the centre. A visit to the 11th-century San Esteban parish church, alongside the remains of the Castle, is worthwhile.The walls surrounding the town were built afterwards and blend with the attached houses. The centre piece is the Fuente Alta or La Reina tower. A visit to San Salvador de Levre Monastery and Javier Castle is a must.
