Fondée/Restaurée 1966


Former Cistercian monastery, re-established by Viaceli. Semi-autonomous Priory: 12 March 1975; Major Priory: 25 January 1980.


Sobrado is an ancient monastery founded in 950. It is a national monument. The Cistercian foundation, as daughterhouse of Clairvaux, was made on 14 February 1142.
The community of Viaceli, among several options, chose this ancient monastery. The buildings were donated by the Cardinal of Santiago. The assistance of official organizations as well as public entities and private donors made possible the restoration of the buildings which were in ruins, except for the church.
After much work, the monastery was ready to receive the founders from Viaceli who took possession of the premises and regular life began on 25 July 1966.
