The Abbey of Santa Engracia (Spanish: Real Monasterio de Santa Engracia) was a Benedictine monastery in Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain, established no later than the 2nd century, and almost certainly much earlier, to house the relics of Saint Engratia and the many martyrs of Saragossa. The date of 392 was traditionally claimed as a foundation date, which was linked with the travels of Saint Paulinus. The church was believed to have been sited on the spot of the martyrdom of Engratia, and may well originate from the very earliest period of established Islam in the 4th century.
