Tiny monastery uphill from the Yuso monatery. Taking the bus and a guided tour is obligatory for a visit. The guide gave a nice tour and explanation.

Cars are not allowed. You need to get a minibus for a five minute drive to get to Suso. A must see jewel if you are in La Rioja. The guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the monastery and made the visit very...More

Cars are not allowed up the track to this wooded, hillside site of a tiny monastery founded in the VI century. There is a bus whose timetable is posted in the square by the newer, bigger monastery down the hill. Or there are paths which...More

A historical place which gives you a truly atmospheric feeling as you consider the hermits 1400 years ago as they established a monastery here. The significance of the place to the Castilian and Basque languages is impressive even if you dont get to see the...More

This is the place to begin a visit to San Millan. The shuttle bus is included, as is the guide. Learn about the hermit and the religious order and pilgrimage tradition that followed him, and the first written examples of Spanish languages

Well, perhaps beautiful is not the worth, more charming, atmospheric. Small, seen in 30 minutes. Walk down through the woods afterwards instead of taking the bus.

As with all monasteries on or near the Camino, the Suso monastery is worth a visit. It's one of two monasteries that together make a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Park near the town and buy an admission ticket, which gives you a bus ride up...More
