Monasterio de Veruela
Monasterio de Veruela information
Backed by the often snowcapped Sierra del Moncayo, the fortified, Cistercian Monasterio de Veruela , founded in the 12th century, looks more like a Castilian castle than a monastery. The rather stern Gothic church is flanked by a charming cloister, which has a lower Gothic level surmounted by a Renaissance upper gallery. There’s a good wine museum within the complex. The monastery is 13km southeast of Tarazona and 1km from Vera de Moncayo. Two of Therpasa’s daily Zaragoza–Tarazona buses stop in Vera itself (one on Sunday); the others stop at the Vera turn-off on the N122, 4km from the monastery.
