Historic Site
The Gothic Monasterio de Pedralbes, a residence for nuns, dates back to the 14th century. During medieval times, the city of Barcelona protected these members of the Order of Saint Clare, although little of the defenses remain today. Note the rose window on the facade of the church. In the former dormitory, you’ll find a permanent exhibition of paintings, including works by Rubens and Velázquez. Bring your camera and a map to help find the place.

  • Beautiful place and lots of history. My favourite parts were the kitchen and the dioramas in Sala Joan Mari i Oliva. €5 adult and €3.50 reduced entry (without audio guides)
  • Great building. So old. If you come to this part of Bcn you should go.
  • Wonderful monastir in a beautiful and quiet environment, in unpscale neighborhood of Pedralbes. The church is not special from the inside, since the ancient frescos has been erased in the XIX century, though, but still worth a visit.
  • This Gothic monastery museum shows the old daily style of religious community. The interior rooms are interesting for the furniture, paintings, sculptures, ceramics, ethnology, etc.
