The monastery played an important role in local history that you can have explained by guides. The church is peculiar (as well as slightly assymetrical) and has just been restored. It holds the remains of several of the earliest kings of Pamplona and Navarre and...More

Lovely scenery, ancient architecture, and beautiful church. The interior you see is mostly on the bottom foundation. This is almost in France and on a branch of the Way of Saint James. Views include the Yesa dam and the Pyrenees.

Very peaceful place, obviously we were there during the week and beginning of June, and we could appreciate the atmosphere. Visit the crypt and admire the columns and the door at the back.

Not only the location up there guarantees the fresh and pure air but you may well get a great view of a dam (so called the sea). Just in case you want to do the same as the monks of the monastery, there is a...More

This monasterio is very popular, a stop for many tour buses. But we felt disappointed, to much of mass market tourist industry (we were there during Easter, maybe this is the high season). If you visit Leyre, don´t miss the crypt. Ig you only have...More
