A good part of the history of Castilla y León was written behind their thick walls. They are sacred temples, places to pray, spiritual homes, true miniature cathedrals.

The convents and monasteries preserve the artistic and cultural testimony of the many religious orders that inhabited them, a reminder of the past economic, social, cultural and religious splendour that made them powerful almost one thousand years ago. The Cluny, Cistercian, Franciscan, Trinitarian, Theresian orders ... all of them protecting the stones upon which western culture was built. Many of them, also, have been turned into hotels and pilgrim hostels.
