Real Monasterio de Santa Maria de Poblet, Poblet

Founded in 1151 by French monks, Real Monasterio de Santa Maria de Poblet forms a triangle with two other monasteries: Vallbona de les Monges and Santes Creus. Eight Aragonese kings were buried here over three centuries. War turned the monastery to ruins, but Italian monks reconstructed it in 1940.

  • Exceptional care of the monastery guided must-see if you will not be able to access 100% of the museum's facilities is impressive only glue that let dogs in and their owners watch the bowel movements

  • Beautiful monastery with that solid and magnificent architecture of the Cistercian route. The altarpiece of the church is beautiful and the peace that is breathed in the church. Place highly recommended to visit. Very beautiful if it also coincides with the vispers prayed by the monks, or complete ones, and also officiate mass every day. On your website are the schedules.

  • What a nice way to spend a couple of hours! You get a real sense of how the monks lived. The architecture is amazing and the gardens are so pretty. We even got the organ being played which made it seem more special. The drive up was pretty and easy. Parking was free and the the lot was big. Bathrooms are clean. The gift shop is nice and it's easy to find things you'd like to buy.
  • Beautiful place to visit, full of history and tranquility. The Cistercian architecture style is truly remarkable in its simplicity. I could have spent hours just sitting in the cloister. Filled my heart with peace.
