Reial Monestir De Santes Creus, Aiguamurcia

4.8
#1 of 7 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."

  • If the visit goes through this area is a must travel this very well mounted and can be done comfortably with an audioguide that gives an extensive explanation with all kinds of details. Conservation is very good and at certain times there is an audiovisual presentation in the old room of desktops, which is spectacular, very well assembled with some interactivity, but would not be of more that explain a little as it should be and that the output is through another door.

  • The video very well achieved., for adults and children. Take the audioguide. Very well maintained, no doubt the most special of the Cistercian route, poblet is imposing, Santes creus does not leave indifferent. Cloister Magico.!
