Founded in 1327 by Queen Elisenda de Montcada, the monastery was originally a home to the community of Poor Clare nuns. A few nuns still live in the complex, but it is also part of the History Museum of the City of Barcelona. The museum displays religious art as well as everyday objects and the rooms where nuns used to live.
