Claustro bajo – Catedral de Santa María de Burgos by neobit

Es una obra equilibrada y armónica del gótico del último tercio del siglo XIII, proyectado y ejecutado por el maestro Enrique. Sus amplios y luminosos ventanales, la riqueza escultórica, tanto monumental como decorativa, con numerosas esculturas de santos, obispos, reyes, y paisajes bíblicos en los pilares de los esquinales y las portadas de sus dependencias, crean un espacio ambiental único en consonancia con su función primordial: la religioso-cultual, y le constituye en uno de los claustro ojivales más bellos de España.

This is a balanced, harmonious work in the Gothic style of the last third of the 13th Century which was projected and executed by the master builder, Enrique. Its wide, bright windows, the richness of its sculpture-work both monumental and decorative, with a variety of sculptures of Saints, Bishops, Kings and biblical landscapes in the pillars of the cornerpieces and the gates to the rooms off it create a unique atmosphere which accords with its religious/cultural function making it one of the most beautiful ogival arch cloisters in Spain.

Reial Monestir de Santa Maria de Pedralbes by neobit

The monastery was founded by King Jaume el Just (James II of Aragon) for his wife Elisenda de Montcada in 1326.
The construction work of the monastery started in March 1326. Queen Elisenda chose its location in the village of Sarrià, which back then was far out of the city of Barcelona. The name “Pedralbes” derives from the Latin Petras Albas (white stones), a white stone is the cornerstone of the apsis. On May 3, 1327 the nuns moved into the monastery.
Since the monastery was built within just one year, it was not influenced by any other architectural styles and is a fine example of particularly homogeneous gothic architecture in Catalonia.
It was not before the 15th century that the third and lowest storey was added to the cloister.
The monastery certainly wouldn’t be as beautiful and impressive without its park in the courtyard. You won’t find a quieter place in all Barcelona – except for the birds singing in the trees and the gurgling of the Renaissance fountain in the centre of the courtyard you won’t hear a sound.
