Barcelona, a photo a day

Poble Espanyol: the romanic monastery

Just outside the village at Poble Espanyol, there is this wonderful 11th century romanic monastery, with it’s sculpture garden. Unfortunately, it was closed when we went there. This is where yesterday’s fountain is situated.

  2. that is one historic monastery,
    i wish you'd show us the interior the next time around.
    the arch details, even from afar looks beautiful.
    but the sculpture in front is a bit of a question though.

  10. There is certainly a 'romantic' feel to this image Rob, you've caught it perfectly.

  11. That's an interesting combination, sculpture and old monastery. Hope you can get back and find it open someday.
