Monastery of Vallbona de Les Monges
The excellent condition, recent restoration and beauty of this Cistercian convent, founded in the 12C, make it one of the landmarks of southern Catalonia. The church is a fine example of Romanesque-Gothic transition. Its Latin cross shape has a single nave with a belltower and three rectangular apses decorated with sculptures. The galleries in the cloister are depicted by Arab, Romanesque and Gothic styles. The capitulary room houses a statue of Our Lady of the Misericord (15C).
