Visit to El Paular Monastery

On a bright, sunny morning in May a group of British Ladies met outside the Monasterio de Sta Maria del Paular to begin our guided tour. We were shown round the church, the cloisters and the cemetery by one of the few remaining monks, and then, after a visit to the monastery shop we drove a short distance to  a restaurant in beautiful surroundings by the river Lozoya where we enjoyed a tasty lunch on the terrace
