Monastery of Sant Daniel, Girona

Local nameMonestir de Sant Daniel de Girona
LocationGirona, Spain

The Monastery of San Daniel is a religious complex in Girona, Catalonia, northern Spain.

It was founded in the early 11th century by will of countess Ermesinde of Carcassonne, who wanted to found a nunnery here. The church, based on that of the monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants, with the addition of a transept, was later renewed. It has a cloister with two floors, the lower from the 13th century and the upper, in Gothic style, from the 15th century. It has double columns with Corinthian capitals.

Artworks include the sepulchre of St. Daniel, whose remains, according to the tradition, were brought here from Arles. It dates to 1345 and was executed by sculptor Aloi de Montbrai.
