The Cistercian Route

The Cistercian Route was established in 1989 on the initiative of the District Councils of Alt Camp, Conca de Barberà and Urgell with the intention of providing a boost for the economies of the three districts and encouraging tourism, and the Route now defines and expresses the character of these regions. The name of the Route reflects the fact that the artistic and cultural heritage of all three districts is has been determined by their three Cistercian monasteries,  Santa Maria de Poblet (Vimbodí, Conca de Barberà), Santa Maria de Vallbona (Vallbona de les Monges, Urgell) and Santes Creus (Aiguamúrcia, Alt Camp).

These three monasteries constitute  the framework for an exceptional and unique heritage triangle, the Cistercian Route.
