The monastery complex, where the Sant Feliu de Guíxols History Museum is located.

The monastery complex is the headquarters of the History Museum. Restoration work has opened up new areas to visitors, such as the Romanesque towers (named the 'Smoke' and 'Horn' towers), which are located either side of the unique pre-Romanesque façade of the Iron Door, the Abbot's Palace, which has rooms for temporary exhibitions, and space to renovate the permanent exhibitions.

The Chapter house holds the archaeological collection. A display on the history of the city and the sea, as well as collections on craftsmanship and artwork are shown on the second and third floors. Here visitors can enjoy the paintings of Josep Albertí, an exhibition on craftsmanship and the cork industry, and a display dedicated to the relationship between the city and the sea, which can be complemented with a visit to a display on Maritime Rescue in the 19th century.

The new project, focused on health, is located on the renovated fourth floor, which has also two conference rooms with capacity for 150 people in the old monastic scriptorium.

The culinary area, which includes the kitchen, the refectory and the Rector's garden, which all provided high-quality food linked to healthy eating based on local and seasonal products.
