This Cistercian abbey, founded in 1151, located at the feet of the Prades Mountains in the comarca of Conca de Barberà in southern Catalonia, is one of the largest in Europe. At its centre is a 12th-century church. The austere, majestic monastery, which has a fortified royal residence and contains the pantheon of the kings of Catalonia and Aragon, is an impressive sight.
