# San Juan de la Peña

This area, which includes Monte Oroel, is a protected area. Within its spectacular scenery there is the Monasterio Viejo (the Old Monastery), which dates from the 10th century. Built underneath an enormous rock, this architectural joy has a magnificent Romanesque cloister and a neo-classical royal pantheon.

Nearby is the Monasterio Nuevo (the New Monastery), from the 17th century, and the new study centres dedicated to the history of the Kingdom of Aragón and the Monastery of San Juan de la Peña.
