A once in a lifetime event deserves a venue like no other. This seafront convent at the edge of Costa Brava, with massive walls, medieval brickwork, tall trees, and a vibrant garden, is a stunning location for a historic and nature-surrounded celebration that surpasses all expectations.

Read on as we show you how beautiful your destination wedding in Spain will be if you choose this venue.
This Romanesque convent along Costa Brava is ideally located in the historic town of Blanes where Arab, Jewish, and Roman influences are seen everywhere. Aside from the medieval buildings that testify to its rich history, Blanes is a tourist destination because of its clear beaches, museums, and botanical gardens that make you feel like you're on a holiday vacation all the time.
Oh! And have we mentioned the world-class regional cuisine from the local restaurants in Blanes? These are dishes and flavors that you should taste while spending your honeymoon in town.
The huge and wide open ceremony area of the convent is what makes it stand out from the rest of the wedding venues in Costa Brava. Imagine saying your I do’s at the very edge of the terrace perched on top of a cliff with the Mediterranean sea down below. The clear blue water sparkling under the sun and the medieval town on the other side in full view make this ceremony area more than scenic.
Atop the terrace is a wide space surrounded by vibrant bushes and trees with the backdrop of the medieval convent. It’s the ceremony area that can accommodate symbolic and civil weddings for up to 60 guests. White wooden chairs can be arranged for your guests as they watch you recite your vows at the edge of the terrace garden with a surreal backdrop. This is the most scenic spot in the venue where outdoor weddings are best celebrated.
Religious ceremonies, on the other hand, can be held inside the small chapel for intimate weddings of up to 20 guests. The chapel offers a more intimate and solemn ambiance for a religious wedding, not to mention protection from unfavorable weather.
After saying your I dos outdoors or in the chapel, you can now enjoy meaningful moments and mouth watering Catalonian cuisine at the wedding reception.
While aperitifs and drinks can be served at the wooden deck outside, wedding receptions here happen in the convent’s banquet hall that used to be the old room of the monks. It’s an impressive stone wall that breathes history and authenticity, with a rustic ambiance because of the red-brownish colors of the room.
This space is big enough to accommodate 200 guests seated. However, an intimate group for the reception is much preferable, giving enough space to create a center stage for speeches and performances.
When getting married in this unique convent, you’re not only getting the perfect location for your wedding in Spain but you’re also in for a wonderful gastronomic experience where a world-renowned chef will prepare delicious Catalan dishes for you.
The venue’s food quality is one of the things that it’s mostly proud about. The dishes in the menu may differ according to your preferences, but the theme is always traditional Catalan cuisine with innovative touches.
This venue truly has it all. From indoor to outdoor ceremony areas, historic banquet halls, and splendid food services that will make your destination wedding in Spain unforgettable.
