Known as the “Monasterio de La Oliva” in Teruel, Spain, this beautiful place was founded in a restored 18th-century building and is still an active monastery with available guest rooms for visitors who are allowed to stay up to eight days. The monastery is in a very tranquil town, but for those looking to discover a little bit more of Spain, the city of Zaragoza is only 80 miles away, a place famous for its architecture, including spectacular churches. Nearby, there’s also the town of Pamplona, and several historic landmarks, such as the town of Sos del Rey Católico. The monastery has become a very popular retreat destination. It has 20 guestrooms and a campsite for those interested in being in contact with nature during their stay.
