(4.6/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.
