Monasterio de Piedra

The Monasterio de Piedra is one of the most visited places in Spain. Visiting it and walking through the surrounding nature gives you the feeling of travelling back in time. Waterfalls, beautiful lakes, impressive architecture and art – this trip to the Monasterio de Piedra combines it all. 

About 3 hours from Valencia, the Monasterio de Piedra is located in the small village of Nuévalos in Zaragoza near the Pierda river. We will pass impressive waterfalls like the Trinidad waterfall, La Caprichosa and the Cola Caballo, which is about 53m high. Besides, we can enjoy the beauty of mystical paths leading us to the Gruta de Iris and ancient towers like the Torre del Homenaje, which is the symbol of the Monasterio de Piedra. 

The history of the Monasterio de Piedra dates back to the year 1186 when Aragon’s king Alfonso II donated this land to the monks of Poblet. Many years later, in 1203, they began to build the monastery which has been occupied by the monks in 1218. 

Since 1983, the Monasterio de Piedra is declared a National Historic and Artistic Monument. In 2009, it was also declared a Site of Cultural Interest, before the government of Aragon awarded it with the medal of tourist merit in 2011.
