Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Tarragona / Poblet / 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.

Poblet has buried eight Kings of the casal de Aragón, in a magnificent royal Pantheon in the center of the Church. Style blend of Romanesque and Gothic, the architectural ensemble is spectacular, and too bad that the interior has suffered many looting. Nestled in a quiet area, this beautiful Cistercian Monastery is a haven of peace. It has a restaurant with a ratio quality - price very appreciable. I recommend a guided tour of a monk, they are two hours very well used.

Rich in its simplicity. Organized by session and with the possibility of guided tour. The visit lasts a long time and is quite recommended. It is good idea to review some history of Aragon and Catalonia and architectural styles before you go, you will enjoy more.

Nice place for a relaxed day. There is a guided tour. Don't miss it!
Miguel GCHow monument, is awesome! A place to see and enjoy the architecture. The bad thing is that the visits are short and could do some reconstruction to see how life was in the past, since it is empty. Interesting but can be improved.
Edgar quiranteHas been very well the place is beautiful but the prices many high
Jaume ArisaThe 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.
Ferran EstradaMoving place! Visit monastery, cloister and Garden Gardens. To embroider with a good food for the restaurants in the area that they are exquisite.
