Reial Monestir de Santa Maria de Pedralbes

Barcelona's Museu-Monestir de Pedralbes is considered to be one of the finest examples of Catalan Gothic architecture and allows us to see the artistic legacy preserved by the community of nuns from the Order of Saint Clare throughout the centuries and to find out about the way they live.

The Museu-Monestir de Pedralbes complex comprises the church and monastery which are set out around a spacious three-tier cloister that provides access to the main rooms: the dormitory, the refectory, the chapterhouse, the abbey and the nuns’ day cells, one of which contains Ferrer Bassa’s splendid mural paintings. The museum contains numerous works of art, religious objects and furniture which the community of nuns has collected over the centuries.

The monastery has a number of collections, all of them associated with the everyday life of the nuns or with the objects the nuns brought with them when they joined the religious order, or which the community of nuns acquired to decorate the monastery, mainly in places of worship such as the church. The collections include paintings, ceramics, furniture, goldware and silverware, textiles, paper and parchment.
