Santes Creus

Santes Creus was a cistercian monastery founded by 1150. After some centuries, part of the houses and stores of the old monastery were sold and up to now have been inhabited by families. Nowadays, it is a very special village surrounded by forests and close to the main routes to explore Catalonia.

In Santes Creus you can enjoy a very relaxing holiday: the old courtyard of the monastery is now a meeting point where children and families meet to play and chat at dawn; the five restaurants of the place offer a good choice to eat out and the nearby swimming pool is good enough to wind down after a busy sightseeing day. Moreover, the house has a patio very nice at night to feel the magic of the place.
