San Bernardo is an old farm and valley located to 4km from Toledo. It was originally known as Mount Zion, as there once was a Marian religious order hermitage with said name on top of one of the two hills on the farm's southern edge. The building actually predates the San Bernardo monastery, which was set up here in 1427. The entire valley (from the left bank of the river to the hermitage, El Ángel farm, La Peraleda and the Bastida hills) is now referred to as San Bernardo. The old monastery has been restored on several occasions. The gardens can be easily visited, and the hermitage is open to the public, though you must ask the monks that still live there to open it for you. San Bernardo is off the Puebla de Montalbán motorway (there is no bus service).
