Date of publication: 2021
Collection: Other publications
Tired of a life of travel and war and suffering from ailments, Charles V opted for a quiet place to retreat and try to atone for his sins. The place chosen was the Jerome monastery in the region of La Vera. Accompanied by his entourage, on 3 February 1557 the emperor arrived at the country palace which he had built next to the monastery of Yuste. He intended to lead a peaceful life, however, he closely followed the political affairs delegated to his son Philip II. His stay in such an idyllic place lasted a little more than a year: on 21 September 1558 Charles V died. Despite the short time he spent in Yuste, the place and the region were marked for History. We invite you to explore this magnificent natural space and inquire about the figure of the most powerful character of his time in these pages. We propose a different reading. Although we start from a clear structure, each section has a space for reflection. Ludic activities and the relationship of data and ideas encourage a more autonomous and meaningful learning. You can go through the guide in different ways and complete the information by searching outside it. You will discover how knowledge can be structured by yourself. Dare to investigate the history, nature and cultural heritage of La Vera.
