Having first visited this wonderful monestary in 1991 with our then mayor Carlos to see what two workers from our village Barx were discovering with some exploratory diggings in the cloister area I have folowed the diggings, preservations and rebuildings with interest. What all visitors can now see is amazing. It is well worth a two hour visit.

When you arrive in Simat there are a couple of nice bars near the entrance where you can get a coffee. Parking is not a problem and entrance to the monastery is... More

The Monastery of Santa Maria de la Valldigna was founded in 1298 by Jaime II of Aragon and is a large complex of several buildings with an architecture that calls attention. The monastery was confiscated by the government in 1835. It was then sold to a farmer who destroyed many of the buildings. The regional government bought the property and... More
