He enjoyed the tour and the visit. It... More

"Món Sant Benet" is an old monastery (dating from 950 A.D.). Literally it means "Saint Benedict World" and, nowadays, is a complex where you will find three restaurants, a gift shop, the old monastery (of course!) and even an hotel surrounded by a natural environment. In addition to the culinary offers, you will find different workshops (depending on the season... More

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. I did not feel like it was a tourist trap as one review read, it was up to date technology blended with personal touches. I have paid more... More

The place where the monastery is, is pretty. The visit is with a guide and the highlight is an audio-visual show and that is all. What you are allowed to visit apart from that is very limited. I think it is not worth the 10 euros that you have to pay. And for 40 minutes max. of duration. There are... More

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.

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...
