We took a taxi to see the Pedralbes Monastery. It is a bit out of town but is worth seeing. Pedralbes is an upscale residential area. I enjoyed seeing the cloisters and the museum. This is very peaceful, part of another world. The museum has a lot of artwork that was donated by the families of the nuns who entered the monastery. There are paintings, religious items, gold and silver pieces. In the past, when a young woman entered the monastery, her family would donate something to the monastery, something like a dowry. With the passage of time, the monasteries accumulated plenty of art, and that is the reason to visit their museums now.
