Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Tarragona / Poblet / Sightseeing / Real Monasterio de Santa Maria de Poblet
Founded in 1151 by French monks, Real Monasterio de Santa Maria de Poblet forms a triangle with two other monasteries: Vallbona de les Monges and Santes Creus. 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.

We had a guided tour which was interesting. There were lots of areas to explore and worth a visit if you are in Poblet. more »
We do not speak Spanish, but still did not have a problem paying for the tour. It is a lovely site, and we didn't have many other tourists there, so it was very peaceful. The guide was so nice to us t... more »

Nice place for a relaxed day. There is a guided tour. Don't miss it!
Consuelo CorellaVisit short, fast, lack of information and face with all this in mind. It was 10 euros per person and actually taught us 4 empty rooms and little else. In addition to this the guide who made the visit was very pedantic and condescending and disrespectful, especially with women. During the visit repeat tiresome and unnecessary way plenty of times the term "gentlemen" to refer to the entire group, composed not by men and women. The number of times that said "gentlemen" could have it divided by half and the other half of times to see appointed to the ladies who were there. This generally speaking of economy of language, if it wasn't for this and was otherwise still seems more incomprehensible. Asked him at the end of the visit please that next occasion took account to the whole of the Group and also appoint the ladies than in the may be, his answer was as throughout their performance, pedantic, condescending and disrespectful. Thus, answered me in "the book of style" (do not know to which referred) tells you only the obligation to refer to the group as warlords and that therefore didn't use the term ladies, too, in the future. I sincerely believe that it has neither style nor education, you will need to change the book. What little we saw of the monastery was architectural and culturally very rich.
Roger TutusausWe have done the tour and is highly recommended! The perfect place to relax in a day is not a holiday.
Menier stephaneA very surprising monastery. many sculptures, ramps in exceptional wrought iron (see photo), a very calm atmosphere, milder weather behind the thick walls.
Antonio NadalHidden plates in Spanish. Biased culture.
