1 review of Monastery of Santa Sofía

Has a small guesthouse retreat

This monastery is located next to the Church of Santa Maria de Arbás, and occupies the entire block between the Calle Arbás and Calle Monjas Sofias. It is a convent of Premonstratensian order nuns, and it also has a small guesthouse retreat. The current building, built in the sixteenth century, is on a site donated by Queen Maria de Molina. The highlight is a high brick built tower. It has two covers, the church's is formed by a pointed arch, and the convent's by an arch. Inside the complex there is a patio called "de la Cisterna" (the cistern) because a cistern was used to collect rainwater.
