The monasteries of Suso and Yuso are both located in San Millán; these two monasteries are of considerable importance in terms of architectural heritage and culture. In fact, the scriptorium at San Millán was one of the most prominent in Spain in the Middle Ages, thanks to the literary work of the monks residing there. Gonzalo de Berceo, the first poet to write in the Castilian language, also came from these lands.
These monasteries and adjoining grounds are a haven for meditation, walks, rests or simply to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Cárdenas Valley.
