Masia Piu

EL POBLET MONASTERY

A road trip of around 30 minutes from Masia Piu through the impressive fields of Catalonia will take you to El Poblet Monastery. It is a medieval work at the foot of a large mountain and overlooking the vineyards.

This wonderful Gothic complex was founded in the 12th century by the French Cistercian monks following the withdrawal of the Moors in Spain.

The Poblet was part of a plan to give up the power of the new Christian Catalonia.

The most historically significant part of it is the Gothic Royal Chapel, where several kings of Aragon were buried from the 12th century until the end of the 15th century.

On the way to El Poblet, you will be able to see the city of Montblanc, which is completely surrounded by medieval walls that protect a nucleus of old stone streets.
