Overview

The Gothic church and its adjoining convent were founded in 1327 by Queen Elisenda of Montcada to house the nuns of the Order of Saint Clare, and now serve as the Pedralbes Monastery Museum. It has a courtyard with a delightful garden and a Renaissance-style fountain. Everything has been carefully maintained and restored, including the nuns' cells, the dining hall, kitchen and infirmary. You can see some of the religious paintings belonging to the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection in one of the rooms.
