Cañas. Monasterio Santa Maria de San Salvador

This Cistercian abbey was one of the first to be founded in Spain. Its construction was undertaken gradually from the 12th century onwards, essentially during the Romanesque and Gothic periods. The church of the monastery surprises the visitor with its great luminosity through the large alabaster windows, which gives it the name of “the Abbey of Light”.
