SLU-Madrid: Day Trip to Monasterio de Piedra

Saturday, 04 September, 2021

A hidden treasure, the Monasterio de Piedra was founded in 1194 when Alonso II granted an Arab castle to the monks of Poblet to build a monastery in the hopes of consolidating Christianity in the area. Legend has it that this monastery is where the first chocolate candy was made. The natural park of Monasterio de Piedra offers an unbelievable experience, with a two-and-a-half hour walk through lush parkland with waterfalls and grottos hidden in one of the driest areas of the region of Aragón.
