The Santa Maria de Pedralbes Monastery really is a great way to see how Monks and Nuns lived 700 years ago. Consecrated in 1326, it’s fair to say that it’s experienced quite a lot goings-on over the years. This fantastic complex is built mainly in the Mendicant style, and it’s typically Catalan. It’s packed full of exhibitions and information telling you about life in the middle ages, from everything from the average medieval person’s perceptions on individualism, to medieval medicine to their diets: see where they slept, ate, fasted and prayed, all whilst maintaining the fabric of medieval Catalan life. There is so much to see that we couldn’t possibly describe it all, but a highlight has to be the stained glass windows in the Church, which are simply spectacular.
The Monastery is great to see, for its beauty, for the peace and tranquility it provides or to experience its rich history. It is a fantastic place to visit for families, with audio tours available, activities for children and support materials to keep the little ones engaged. The Monastery also has staff trained to ensure that those with disabilities profit fully from what it’s got on offer. General admission is €5, with children under 16’s entry free, provided they are with a paying adult. And if you’re lucky enough that your trip coincides with the first Sunday of each month, the entrance is free.
Although this monastery is not super central, that’s not to say that it’s difficult to get to! It’s easily accessible from Metro Stop Maria Cristina Palau Reial (Line 3), or from the Exit 9 from the Ronda de Dalt, as well bus lines H4, 68 and 78. The monastery is open from October to March Monday to Friday 10 am until 2 pm, weekends from 10 am to 5pm, and in the summer Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5 pm, 10 am to 7 pm on weekends. It is also just 15 minutes’ walk from the Parc de l’Oreneta.
