Monastry of Saint Jeronimo

The history of this Monastery stretches back hundreds of years, and it has been witness to many historical events, such as the last residence and place of death of Carlos V in 1558 and the presence of the centuries old Jeronimo Order. Yuste Monastery can be classified as a “singular building” in Spain. It has a rich and important cultural heritage and has witnessed many major events in the history of Spain and Europe. Many of these events have been related to the European outlook of the monastery. Carlos V is an essential figure for understanding this part of the European common history and his legacy is connected to this monastry as well. Secondly, there is the Jeronimo Order, which had its Curia in the Yuste Monastery, founded in 1408. The life of a Jeronomite monk was one of prayer, silence and work. It is a monastic life that, in short, combines the life of Carthusian, Trappist and Benedictine monks, concepts that have been deeply rooted in European culture since the Middle Ages.
