Monasterio de Leyre

As with the other Spanish monasteries, it was abandoned in 1834. When it was revived in this century it was heavily remodeled, with the monks moving into seclusion in a new cloister to the south of the church, while the old cloister to the north was partially dismantled, and the remaining buildings were turned into a hotel.
