4.7
#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Alt Camp
Situated in Catalonia's wine-producing region of Alt Camp, Reial Monestir De Santes Creus is a representative example of Cistercian architecture. Built and expanded upon from the 12th to the 18th centuries, the monastery served as the largest and most influential monastic domains of the Kingdom of Aragon until the Cistercians abandoned the building in 1825. Today you can visit the Gothic-style church, the Romanesque cloister, the chapter house and dormitory, and the royal tombs of monarchs who took part in the conquest of Majorca. You can also learn more about the monastery's history and the Cistercian way of life through the on-site audiovisual "The Cistercian World."

  • a visit to this monastery where we can better understand the life of the monks of the time. Nice restoration. see the film of the presentation (in French)

  • I recommend making the visit with a guide because the vision you have of the monument is much better than going without it, especially if the guide is good as has been our case with Jordi. Interesting visit within the route of the Cistercian, of a majestic monastery in which much of it is preserved. Spectacular views of the monastery when you are coming to the village
