Experiences

An activity to relieve stress, relax, enjoy the tranquility of religious spaces, and to know the Gothic cloister considered the largest in the world that is preserved. Every Tuesday and Friday of summer, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the Monastery of Pedralbes opens the doors of the cloister and offers a disconnection space. Around the cloister, several day cells can also be seen, where the nuns retired for personal recollection.

The Monastery of Pedralbes was founded by Queen Elisenda of Montcada in 1327, with the support of her husband, King Jaime II of Aragon. As was usual at the time, the new monastery was inhabited from the beginning by Clarisas (Poor Clare) nuns, the female branch of the Order of San Francisco. The Poor Clare nuns resided in the monastery, almost uninterruptedly, until 1983.
