#11 of 110 in Museums in Barcelona
The Gothic Reial Monestir de Santa Maria de Pedralbes, a residence for nuns, dates back to the 14th century. During medieval times, the city of Barcelona protected these members of the Order of Saint Clare, although little of the defenses remain today. Note the rose window on the facade of the church. In the former dormitory, you’ll find a permanent exhibition of paintings, including works by Rubens and Velázquez. Bring your camera and a map to help find the place.

  • Building of more than 700 years old, very well preserved, and with an interesting gallery of liturgical treasures. Cheap tickets with audio guide and it will take you 1 hour to get around the place.

  • Taking advantage of the festivities of the Merca, and that thanks to this, the entrance was free, I went with my wife to this monastery that is one of the hidden gems that Barcelona has and that does not have as much fame as the Sagrada Familia, and is not as well known as cultural claim. It is worth visiting because of how beautiful it is and how well organized it is to the visitor. You can best enjoy the visit if you rent an audio guide. It reflects an idea of what life was like in Barcelona and in the monastery in the Middle Ages.
