Visit the Escaladei monastery
In its beginnings, the lands on which the Carthusian Monastery of Escaladei stands were ceded by King Alfonso I so that the Carthusians could repopulate their lands once the Saracen invasion was over. Throughout its history, the monastery has been expanded and has gone through several architectural styles. At the beginning, its style was Romanesque, later changing to Gothic. Unfortunately with the confiscation of Mendizábal in 1835, the monastery was abandoned and began a process of degradation. Thanks to the latest renovations, you can visit parts such as the church or the main cloister.
