Monastery of St. Isidro de Dueñas, La Trapa


In these 21 centuries of history, this place has gone through successive reconstructions and declines: Romans, Visigoths, Muslim attacks, assignment to Cluny, restoration by the Catholic Kings, headquarters of the Napoleonic troops, the government expropriation of 19th century and, finally, thanks to the Cistercian Order, the material and spiritual recovery.

They maintain the marvellous Liturgy of the Hours’s music, have lodging open to the public and a shop with their organic products. Here is buried San Rafael Arnáiz, Patron of Youth, canonized in 2009 by Benedict XVI.
