Mediterranean Trilogy: Casbas and Ibieca  

Between fields of olives, grapes vines and almonds groves, at the foothills of the Sierra de Guara, next to the Royal road linking Huesca to Barbastro stands the church of San Miguel de Gorges which is an important temple, declared a National Monument. Inside you can experience the Cistercian style in all its glory.

This site was originally designed as a family vault and houses an interesting collection of paintings in the linear Gothic style. The echoes of the hospital friars of St. John of Jerusalem who inhabited the monastery have long since disappeared. The monastery of Santa Maria de la Gloria, located in the village of Casbas, is one of the few examples of Cistercian nunneries in Aragon. Its sober walls house numerous installations and facilities from different periods that will evoke a sense of history of this community. Why not stop along the way and enjoy this fantastic location. A beautiful place full of spirituality.
