The monastery was open later than we expected and it was lovely. Not crowded, a bit cooler and the service started at 7.00pm so we were able to sit in and listen. The cloisters were also a highlight

One of those not so well known places but worth the trip! Besides being in one of the nicest routes to travel, the monastery is full of history & mysticism. Beautiful!

This is a monastery in the peaceful town of Poblet, not too far from Tarragona. It is still active and you may see the occasional Cistercian monk walking around. You enter via a big open courtyard, and once inside you will find big halls, ornate...More
