Lovely tour, wonderful restoration. Reasonable price . . . Fun gift shop. A lovely garden, lots of photo opportunities. Interesting stories and the guides are willing to spend extra time answering questions.

Excellent guide, a quirky building, beautifully restored with lots of interesting features and careful use of technology to enhance the visit. Clever, discrete and better than Disney! (We did the 'old' tour). There is another tour of the converted living quarters that we will save for next time.

Great place to relax and enjoy delicious food supervised by a cook that worked side by side with world class chef Ferran Adrià. Don't forget to visit the Montserrat monastery on your way to Barcelona. Can't recommend enough.

They made this amazingly old monastery into a modern masterpiece. A great way to learn about Spain's history.

Imagine a burgeois summer house in a part of a romanic monestry. Add some paintings and rich furniture belonging to this rich family Cases, who restored the building with care and love. then add some histories related to the owner who was a famous modernist painter worldwide recognized...and on the top, add the rest of the amazing building, state of...
