Monestir de Pedralbes
Considered to be one of the most beautiful buildings of the Catalan Gothic period in the whole of Catalonia, it is a shame that so few people know about this treasure. Built in the early 14th century, the Monestir de Pedralbes has since shown the life of everyday nuns through religious art in the monastery museum inside. Not only does it boast stunning and intricate architecture which can be admired from the outside and inside, it also features an elegant three story cloister and a beautiful park inside the enchanting monastery. Given its location in what was, until the 20th century, still the countryside, it’s no surprise that the surroundings are peaceful and the experience somewhat spiritual. A fantastic historical and cultural learning point, and an admirable demonstration of Gothic architecture, it’s worth steering away from the bustle of the crowds of tourists to see the Monestir de Pedralbes.
