Bring your family to the Desierto de los Leones (don't worry, no lions!) Pass through the lush forest to visit a former convent full of mysteries. High walls and deep tunnels. Dark rooms and sunny gardens. Stone cells and forest trails. A very special family day.

Arriving at the Desierto de los Leones Convent you will be amazed by the contrast between the manicured gardens and the solidity of the high stone walls of what was once a magnificent retreat. A monk will guide you through scenes from a movie. The cell corridors. The courtyard. Hold the hand of your children when you go down into the dark vaults.

When you cross between arches and huge naves without a roof, you will hear the wind moving the leaves of the trees and it seems as if you can hear chants, because you're in the middle of a beautiful National Park. Go out and walk the trails of the forest. Get in touch with nature. Enjoy the magic of the landscape that captivated the monks hundreds of years ago.

There are plenty of food stalls and restaurants around the convent where you can eat.

If you want to take home a souvenir, you can also buy handicrafts.

Check the calendar of events. There are exhibitions, concerts and cultural events within the enclosure.
