Joy and Peace to be found here.Ever shall my heart remember the visit to Poblet Monastery.The sound of Holy Voices blending in a Goodnight Prayer.All is quiet All is peaceful evening in the Abbey.Organ peals across the valley echoing so tenderly oh so quiet oh so peaceful makes you wish the World could hear..

Just a short bus ride from Montblanc. An amazing site in the middle of vineyards. it must have been a mini city in its heyday. Caught the organist rehearsing during our visit. Awesome sound. Restaurant Masia Sagues, a short walk away was great value for an excellent lunch.

Just back from a long tour through Spain visiting historical benchmarks and this, of course, was making top of my list. Founded as early as 1150 this monastery performed a very important act in Catalonia’ political life. It was renovated in 1940, a long time after it was abandoned in 1830 and it hosts Benedict monks every since then. It is amazing how many Spanish kings and queens are resting here. It is in great shape, very well maintained, this is another reason this place is on the UNESCO heritage list. The staff is very helpful and respectful, another rare thing. Young girls mostly they come and tell you things without even asking. We were there early, another good thing, parking at discretion and very few people to step on your toes. We were lucky we got to see the cloister, as we were leaving one of the girl told us we cant go visit any longer because the monks are praying and that was off limits now. Therefore, if you are planning to visit this place go early morning, they open at 10:00, I think. I will not tell you about the church, the altar and everything else, they are all gorgeous inside out. Just go see it for yourself. I attached a bunch of beautiful pictures as well. Cheers!
