Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Barcelona / Barcelona / Old Monastery of Sant Pau del Camp
Seek respite from Barcelona's bustle at the peaceful Old Monastery of Sant Pau del Camp, an ancient church. Though the exact origins of this former monastery are unknown, it is thought to date back to the 10th century, making it one of the city's oldest buildings. Due to destruction by Muslim troops, much of what stands today was actually built in the 13th century, including the column-lined cloister. Look closely to examine its depictions of biblical stories, scenes from daily life, monsters, and vegetable motifs. The grounds serve as a serene spot for rest and contemplation.
