The church of Santa María, with a Gothic and a Romanesque part, is inside the Cistercian monastery of Santa María la Real de la Oliva, a large set of Romanesque monastic architecture and an outstanding example of Navarrese Cistercian art, located in the southern Navarran town of Carcastillo (Spain). It is considered the oldest monastery in Spain. It consists of three ships. Cistercian austerity can be seen in the simple decoration of the temple but, at the same time, configure something magic. Inside, the deafening silence can only cover your breath.
