World Heritage site by UNESCO

«An impressive architectural complex and one of the largest monasteries in Europe. Declared World Heritage, it is home to a large monastic community that maintains the spirituality of the place»

The Monastery of Poblet is located within the region of the Conca de Barberà, between the towns of Vimbodí-Poblet and l'Espluga de Francolí.  Sheltered by the slopes of the mountains of Prades, in a beautiful setting, where abundant springs flow and where the immense forest of Poblet with its lush and varied vegetation used to be one of the many possessions of the monastery. Since 1984 this forest is a Natural Site of National Interest. The name derives from the Latin for poplar (Populetum). Poblet and its impressive architectural monuments can be counted among the most important monasteries in Europe. In addition to the magnificent church, prominent example of Cistercian art, preserved almost all the buildings that were built according to the needs of a community filled with vitality and expansion and protection of the sovereigns of the confederation Catalan-Aragonese: especially since Pere III el Cerimoniós  (1336-1387) made the monastery a place for the royal dynasty to be interred. 

It is the biggest monastery on the Cistercian route and the only one of the two monasteries that has a community of monks. In 1991 it was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
