Of the three Cistercian monasteries, Santes Creus is the one that reproduces the Bernardine plan of construction more faithfully.
It is one of the largest and best preserved Cistercian monastic sets that we can visit today. Founded in 1168, protected by the nobility and the kings, it became a spiritual center, of studies and colonization of the territory. The monastic life remained uninterruptedly until 1835.
The church, of soberness and imposing architecture, has the royal tombs of Peter the Great and of James II and his wife Blanca d’Anjou, as well as that of Grand Admiral Roger de Llúria. We can also admire the Cistercian and Gothic stained glass windows and a baroque altarpiece by Josep de Tremulles.
We will also highlight the chapter room, the deskorium, the great monks’ bedroom and the Gothic cloister (14th century) attributed to the English Reinart des Fonoll, with an elegant carved decoration.
