Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Barcelona / Barcelona / Reial Monestir de Santa Maria de Pedralbes
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.

Aprovechando la festividad de la Mercè, y que gracias a ello, la entrada era gratuita, fui con mi mujer a este monasterio que es unas de las joyas ocultas que tiene Barcelona y que no tiene tanta fama... more »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.
