Monastery and hotel
Món Sant Benet is a cultural and touristic space with a thousand-year monastery as the main attraction. It offers lots of different activities to enjoy culture, gastronomy and nature only 45 minutes far from Barcelona.
Sant Benet de Bages monastery is the main part of the complex. In this Benedictine monastery founded in the 10th Century you will be able to appreciate how different periods have left their mark: Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Modernism. There are two different routes to discover it in an entertaining and surprising way with a multisensory installation. The first route tells the history of this place until 19th Century, going through the church, the crypt, the cloister, the wine cellar, the monk cells and the sunny midday gallery. With the second route you will visit the part of the monastery that a famous modernist painter – Ramon Casas – converted into his summer residence. He rebuilt the monastery in the Modernist style with support from Puig i Cadafalch, a well-known modernist architect with important buildings in Barcelona.
Moreover, in Món Sant Benet you will have the chance to visit Alicia Foundation, an international research center in cooking and nutrition lead by Chef Ferran Adrià.
