The town of Caleruega is the birthplace of Saint Dominic of Guzmán, one of Europe’s master evangelists. The monastery boasts an archive holding the records of various royal privileges, donations of the foundation, the ordination of several Masters of the Order and papal bulls, etc., dating back to the 13th century and whose excellent state of conservation is attributable to the painstaking care and attention provided by the nuns over the centuries.

This is a very special place whose doors are open to all those wishing to share the religious services, prayer and companionship that pervades the atmosphere here. Everyone who visits this place expresses not only their admiration for the magnificent architecture, but also its very special environment.
