Surrounded by the Natural Park of Mocayo, and close to the Moorish city of Tarazona, the Monastery of Veruela is a must for lovers of medieval art.
Surrounded by a long wall, shadowed by old banana and pine apple trees in the romantic garden, the peaceful abbey stuns you with its beauty and peace.
Founded in 1145 by the Cistercian Order, the monks hid themselves in this paradise away from the rest of the world and built over the centuries a work of art. The Romanic, gothic and baroque are all represented in a perfect form in doorways, friezes, columns and ceilings.
The Monastery of Veruela is unforgettable, not only for the delicacy of its architecture, but also because, in spite of its grandeur, itfills one with thoughtfulness and immense peace.
