Unlike the Monastery of Poblet, Santes Creus has been uninhabited for some decades now. But that does mean that visitors can enter all of its spaces, some of which have been turned into museum exhibits. This is a beautiful monastery, whose cloister is a perfect example of the transition from the Romanesque to the Gothic style and which boasts exquisitely detailed capitals. The church, which contains the tombs of a number of Kings of the Crown of Aragon, is another highlight of the visit.
