Overview
More
The male Cistercian monastery of Santa Maria de Salzedas was founded in 1156 and its construction started in 1168. It was in the late 16th century and during the 17th century that the monastery has the first great renovation works. The medieval cloister was transformed, around 1700, by another, in Baroque style. The maltese architect Carlos Gimach designed the latter and it was one of the most emblematic transformations in the monastery.

A beautiful and old monastery church flanked by a refurbished hall where a small exhibition takes place. If you are interested in the life of Saint Bernard and the French Cistercian order this is for you. It might not be a must do but it...More
