Monastery of Santa Maria de les Franqueses

Another of the accessible and interesting visits next to Lo Palauet de la Muralla is this Cistercian monastery of the 12th century, situated near Balaguer and that you can access on foot or by car.

The church

The church (today in process of restoration) has a Latin cross and is a single nave encased of a slightly aimed turn. Outside suits to make attention at the apse semi-circular and at the rosette of the transept north, as well as at the remains of the cloister and of the cells.

Arrival:

  • At car exit of Balaguer to Menàrguens and at some three Kilometres take a detour on the left.
  • You can also go on foot, passing among the Pàmies horticulture and the river, on an asphalted path that goes tracking the orchard of Below.
