Hidden in the very north of Spain is one of the most mystical places you could ever be. Surrounded by the mountains, it was the perfect place for the monks to look for calm back in the century XII. It was their golden age. But nothing lasts forever, and after quite a while most of the monasteries were abandoned for hundred of years. It became then a forgotten place.
Visiting this place you can feel something different, I would say spiritual. Every morning starts with the fog stuck in the rivers. The cold is very intense. The forests are so dense that some of the monasteries even pass unnoticed. That's the beauty of it. That's what the monks were looking for a long time ago.
