What a treasure we found in Poblet, at a working monastery with a host of buildings added on over the centuries. Our guide did a wonderful job of explaining the different areas of the complex. We were also free to take pictures, with the exception...More

I really enjoyed our morning at this working monastery (despite somehow becoming locked in when the monks started cleaning - swift escape through the fire door). It is a very tranquil setting and certainly wasn't to 'touristy' when we went in May.

We visited as part of a group tour of Catalonia. Monsa was our official guide, she was very interesting, easy to understand and easy to listen to. No lecture involved just information on the history, lifestyle and architecture of the monastery. A nice gift shop...More

We do not speak Spanish, but still did not have a problem paying for the tour. It is a lovely site, and we didn't have many other tourists there, so it was very peaceful. The guide was so nice to us too. I Highly recommend...More
