The Monastery of Pedralbes comprises a church, the monastery and a museum. It was founded by King James II of Aragon for his wife Elisenda de Montcada in 1326 and is administrated by the nuns of the Order of Saint Clare. The building itself is a fine example of gothic architecture and construction was completed in a short time preventing any other influences in the design. Inside the building also lies the tomb of Queen Elisenda. On the right of the church is the entrance to the monastery where you will find St. Michael's chapel, which has beautiful frescoes depicting scenes from the lives of Jesus and Mary. The museum is located in what was formerly a dormitory for the nuns. Here you will find religious art and objects collected by the nuns over the centuries. The collections include paintings, ceramics, furniture, silverware, textiles, paper and parchment. The gardens of the monastery are also worth taking a stroll.
