Al abrigo de la Sierra Urbasa-Andía
In the Yerri Valley you can find the Cistercian Monastery of Santa Maria de San Jose which was built 50 years ago. Its importance lies not in its tourist value, but being a witness of the presence of God amongst us.
Indeed, the Alloz Monastery, as it is popularly known, was built in 1961 on the foundations of the old Alloz Farm which belonged to the Cistercian Monastery of Irantzu.
It is a place of meditation, silence and prayer, where the sisters who form the community have followed Christ and the gospel, dedicating themselves to the meditation of the sacred Scripture and praise of the Lord, alternating between manual work and craftsmanship, the source of their income. The monastic congregation in Alloz is the centre of spiritual radiation that helps to keep alive the mystical flame of God that is achieved by inner experience and the light that shines with praying personally to Jesus.
Capacity: 20 people
This spiritual experience is shared throughout the Monastery Guesthouse, for all people looking for profound contact with Christ who want to participate in their life of prayer and retreat.
