Pedralbes Monastery

Pedralbes Monastery

It was founded by the King Jaime II and his wife Elisenda de Moncada in 1327. It is a group of Gothic style monuments.

 

That consists of a church and a monastery with a large three floors cloister where the main rooms are located.

The Pedralbes Church consists of only one nave and is dominated by a Gothic altarpiece carried out Jaime el Huguet. The cloister, according to which the monastery is organized, has three floors and is 40 meters length. It consists of wide arches that lean on numerous columns. The capitals are decorated with the emblem of the Kings of Aragon and the Casa de Moncada´ s.

It houses numerous works of art, liturgical objects and furniture that the Order of St. Clare collected during centuries of stay in the Monastery. We should also highlight the Chapel of St. Miguel, in which you can see different murals of the Passion and the Virgin´ s life by Ferrer Bassa.
