Yuso Monastery in San Millán de la Cogolla


Description

Together with the famous Suso Monastery, it is considered to be the 'cradle of the Spanish language' as it was the scenario of the first words ever written in Castilian, and of the first poems in the language. Its library is one of the most important in Spain for the value and antiquity of the writings it contains, including over 300 mediaeval documents. Inside the monastery visitors can also see other areas such as the sacristy, in the Rococo style with magnificent frescoes on the ceiling. The hall known as the Salón de los Reyes is home to several works by the monk Juan Rizzi. Other interesting features include the Greco-Roman choir and the mediaeval high altarpiece. It has been declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.
