Eight Aragonese kings were buried here over three centuries. War turned the monastery to ruins, but Italian monks reconstructed it in 1940. You’ll see the imprint of the centuries’ various architectural styles here. Active monks still live at this site. You can even visit the wine cellar for a tasting.

  • The Royal Monastery of Santa Maria de Poblet Cistercian order was founded in the year 1150 is a site that gathers tranquillity in their environment and with an architectural complex and that as a whole it is worth to be visited on more than one occasion and that I particularly have made from 65 years to date I have seen changes in the course of all these years.
