Monasterio de Piedra is a monastery, hotel and park complex in the Iberian System mountain ranges, near Nuévalos, province of Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain. The monastery was founded in 1194 by Alfonso II of Aragon, with thirteen Cistercian monks from Poblet Monastery, in an old castle next to the Piedra River, and was dedicated to St. Mary the White . On February 16, 1983, the entire complex was declared a national monument.
The Monasterio de Nuestra Señora de Piedra is located besides the Piedra River. It is undoubtedly one of the most visited places in Aragon because of the many gardens and waterfalls created by the river located in the Piedra Canyon. This attraction has become a place of rest and recreation for tourists.
