The ever-pressing demands of mass tourism can even result in the creation of a museum where none existed before. The Monastery of Santes Creus in Catalonia, Spain, is just such an example, for through an audacious mix of state-of-the-art multimedia design and fourteenth-century vestiges, it has integrated scenographic, lighting and narrative techniques borrowed from the theatre to allow visitors to enter into the everyday life of the Cistercian order, once one of the most widespread in medieval Europe. Mihail Moldoveanu is a freelance photographer and writer based in Paris.
