Cloister.14th century
Work on the cloister began in 1313 under the patronage of king Jaume "the Just" and
queen Blanca d’Anjou.
In 1341 abbot Francesc Miró declared to work on the cloister to be finished.
It is Gothic in style, richly decorated, and therefore far removed from the
Cistercian concepts of simplicity and austerity.
The galleries are covered by ribbed vaults and the windows, with pointed arches, are filled with splendid tracery.
Northern gallery
There are six niches on the wall of the church containing the ossaries of the families of Catalan nobility.
