Monasterio de Valbuena in the middle of Ribera del Duero

There are so many things to do in Ribera del Duero besides drinking amazing good wines!!! For instance to visit the (Monasterio de Valbuena) (Valbuena Abbey) in the heart of Ribera del Duero, very, very closed to what has been considered the golden mile because of its superb vineyards. It is an Abbey that was first founded in 1143.

It has been rehabilitated and converted into a five stars Hotel with Spa. You might know that wine consumption on this area existed before the romans came to Spain, but after the fall of the Roman Empire the knowledge of growing grapes and making wine was in Ribera del Duero on the monks risponsibility in Abbeys like Valbuena Abbey. To listen to this story in this abbey just before or after having visited a winery is an experience you should not miss.


The abbey

The abbey now has been converted into a five stars hotel with spa. One of the best things you can do after having visited several wineries is to relax in the different pools that the hotel Gad of cold and warm water, to have a sauna or a massage that will leave you in perfect conditions for visiting more wineries and drinking more wines on the following day.

When you visit wineries and drink wine on them the best way to enjoy of them very, very slowly.

When you visit a spa you are not looking at the watch. Just the opposite. If you are a wine lover I am pretty sure that you will enjoy being in the Valbuena Abbey and enjoy the several services they offer.
