Today we are showcasing Santa María La Piedra Monastery, a monument full of history where you absolutely won’t regret going.
The Monasterio’s patron is Santa María la Blanca. The building is located in the old castle of Piedra Vieja. This National Monument is worth a stop over in your travels through Zaragoza.
The entire building is enclosed with a high wall. Inside you can see the Medieval Tower of Homage and an open cloister of large pointed arches. The beautiful chapter house was the nerve center of monastic life. The cells were housed in the building, which is now a comfortable hotel. The Romanesque columns of the old Abbey Palace support the new palace.
Join one of the guided tours to hear how the monks lived and existed centuries ago. The Wine Museum of the D.O.Calatayud is located in the old cellars of the monastery. Quench your thirst after a historical tour!
