Themed visit. Discovering the medieval food system at the Monastery of Pedralbes.

The medieval vegetable garden at the Monastery of Pedralbes is the starting point for De l'hort a la taula (From vegetable garden to table), an activity which entails a series of visits to the monastery this summer and allows visitors to discover the main characteristics of medieval food and the diet of the Poor Clare nuns in Pedralbes in the Middle Ages.

Participants at the vegetable garden can see produce which was planted by the community during the course of the year, as well as the cultivation and harvesting techniques they used. The visit continues in the space where food was conserved and stored, and then moves onto the kitchen, with an explanations of some recipes. The visit concludes in the refectory, with an explanation of ascetic practices linked to food in the medieval Christian world and more precisely in the sphere of the women’s convent.

Activity for anyone over the age of 12.
