“Behind the Walls of the Monastery: 700 Years of History in Feminine”

The feminine side of the history of the Pedralbes Monastery in 3D

The space is presenting a new exhibition that recreates some of the spaces where the nuns lived in virtual reality.

Reial Monestir de Santa Maria de Pedralbes would never have become so important were it not for the women behind it over the course of the centuries. This November they’re opening an exhibition that will explain precisely and in detail the history of the place: “Behind the Walls of the Monastery: 700 Years of History in Feminine”. What's more, for the first time ever, they're bringing in 3D technology so that visitors can have a complete educational experience. This exhibition is the result of wide-reaching and ambition research that will allow you to get even closer to the monastery than ever before. This immersive experience contains large-format images that will help you imagine what the cloister gardens were like, to see how the golden motifs glittered in the chapel and recreate the atmosphere of the infirmary and the kitchen with all of the utensils they used to cook up tinctures and food. What's more, everyone who enters the display will get the chance to don the 3D glasses and see what the rooms were like virtually. The exhibition ends with a video about the power that the Pedralbes abbesses held in the Middle Ages and in the early modern period.

The exhibition “Behind the Walls of the Monastery: 700 Years of History in Feminine” will open on 28 November and will be in the Pedralbes Monastery for a long time. The space is open to the public at varying times, depending on the season.

Normal tickets for the monastery cost €5 and will allow you to see all of the exhibitions. You can find all of the information on the Pedralbes Monastery website.
