The Monastery of Sant Cugat is an exceptional religious complex. It's known as one of the most significant cloisters in Europe and also as one of the greatest exponents of medieval art in Catalonia.

A true jewel of Romanesque sculpture and architecture, the cloister's unique decoration features 144 spectacular columns – while the church building itself shows the clear transition from Romanesque to Gothic design.

Make the most of your visit by exploring it at your own pace, using a handy audio guide that includes two different tours: Listen to the Voice of the Monastery, where you will discover the history and architecture of the most powerful monastic complex in the former county of Barcelona, and Medieval Stone Book, letting you interpret the capitals on the columns and their hidden symbolism.
