Preserving the historical legacy
Restoration works began in May 2008. From the beginning, the project was designed not only as a hotel and winery but also as a place in which to enjoy a unique experience through its artistic and historical legacy. The Italian architect Marco Serra was responsible for this project and he remained faithful to its architectural and philosophical legacy, as well as the original structures of the monastery. He therefore preserved the architectural styles and way in which the Premonstratensian way of life was expressed. Europa Nostra awarded Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage.
Another example is the Museum Garden, which perfectly reflects the peace and tranquillity of the interior, although Rückriem’s sculptures are of an avant-garde-style and contrast with the building’s old stone.
