#9 of 110 in Museums in Barcelona
The Gothic Reial Monestir de Santa Maria 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.

  • Nice monastery, without much to visit, but still worth getting lost between your stays. It also includes a small museum with beautiful pieces on display. It's not a must visit, but it's worth seeing.

  • Beautiful magnificently preserved cloister, converted into a museum. A beautiful corner of Barcelona, interesting visit to forget about the hustle and bustle of the city of Barcelona.

  • For a short walk off the beaten track, the visit to this monastery was surprising because extremely well preserved and beautiful, this place is well preserved, with paintings as well as kitchens and laundromats of periods. The garden is superb with a collection of aromatic plants of all kinds.
