Calm oasis 10 minutes drive from central Burgos, monastery in a lovely woodland setting. This is a working monastery, we didn’t see the monks but we did hear their singing. There is a little shop as you go in where you can buy things made by the monks, different soaps, fragrance, postcards, stamps etc. The chapel itself is beautiful inside and out and for a little out of the way chapel we were pleasantly surprised to find everything translated into English. Friendly English speaking man welcomes you and mans the shop, other than that you are left to your own devices. Stunning alter piece, pay 1€ to light it up (enterprising monks!) it’s well worth it, exquisite carvings and paintings, great little excursion out of the city to this peaceful and fragrant place (flower incense scents everywhere). We were here in winter, but on a summers day you could walk around the wooded grounds and have a picnic.
