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."

We were also surprised by the low attendance and therefore made this place a privileged place. Recommend headphones that describe the history of the venues for each game.
Beautiful monastary. Even if it's closed its worth a visit as the outside is very pretty as well. (We did not go in)
Nice audio-visual presentation of the monastery. Well preserved, nice staff at the entrance. Interesting tour.
