Description

An example of religious architecture

The monastery of Poblet is one of the best examples of religious architecture in Catalonia.

It was founded by Ramón Berenguer IV, Count of Barcelona, who ceded it to the Cistercian order. The monarchs of Aragon chose it as their royal pantheon and it became one of the major cultural centres of the time; its library was particularly famous. It is an extremely valuable monumental site. Its most important buildings date from the 13th to the 15th centuries.
