Barcelona’s Museu-Monestir de Pedralbes (Pedralbes Monastery) 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.  Religious art from the 14th to the 20th century is displayed in the monastery museum.

The monastery is located in the upper left area of the city and it’s easily reachable by public transportation.
