A fairytale journey into the past. We travel back more than 800 years to visit natural landscapes, dreamlike waterfalls, fairytale lakes, enchanting hiking trails, art and architecture. It is located about 3 hours from Valencia.
The Monasterio de Piedra, designated as a Cultural Monument, is one of the most spectacular and visited places in Spain.
This paradisiacal place is located in the village of Nuévalos in Zaragoza, on the banks of the river Pierda, with impressive waterfalls such as Trinidad, la Caprichosa or la Cola Caballo (53 m high). Magical corners like El Baño de Diana, el Lago del Espejo, la Peña del Diablo. Furthermore, centenary trees, spectacular paths, mystical places like la Gruta de Iris and impressive towers like la Torre del Homenaje, the symbol of the Monasterio de Piedra.
The history of the monastery dates back to 1186, when the king of Aragon Alfonso II donated the land to the monks of the monastery of Poblet. In 1203 they began to build the monastic buildings. In 1218 the monks occupied the monastery. In 1983 the monastery was declared a national historic and artistic monument, in 2009 it was declared a site of cultural interest. And in 2011 it was awarded the medal of tourist merit by the government of aragon.
