Host your next yoga
retreat with us

El Convento Retreat Centre has been running yoga retreats for over 16 years. Located in the heart of the Sierra de las Nieves National Park, this former Monastery offers breath taking views across the valley. Making El Convento the ideal destination to unwind, rejuvenate, and immerse yourself in nature.

Where you'll practice

Nestled within the serene surroundings, the former hermitage of San Juan boasts a shaded roof terrace that can accommodate up to 20 people. Here, guests can indulge in their yoga practice while basking in the breath taking panoramic views of the valley and maybe catching a glimpse of an eagle soaring overhead.
