Time Out says

One of the three monasteries that make up the Cistercian Trails and possibly the best known thanks to its grandeur, the fact that the Kings of the Crown of Aragon are interred here and because it has been inhabited by monks since they returned here in 1940. Founded in the mid-12th century, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.
