The following guided tours are available in English:

Santa Creu Heritage Walk:

The parish church is a late Gothic building and includes the table of Nostra Dona de la Pau, one of the oldest works the church contains,  the table of Sant Cristòfol which is the work of Francesc Comes, and the image of Nostra Dona del Bon Camí, now inserted into a Neo-Gothic table, attributed to Rafel Mòger.
Inside the church there was a collection of old tombstones, and after being recovered they were displayed on the outer walls of the building, on the side where the steps leading down to the Sant Llorenç crypt are.
Items of note are the Sant Cristòfol altarpiece: An outstanding item of artistic heritage in the church is the altarpiece of Sant Cristòfol, from the 15th century, the work of Francesc Comes and well-defined in stylistic terms. The Crypt of Sant Llorenç serves as a base to the apse of the church of Santa Creu. Details reminiscent of the Poblet library have been seen on its pillars, as well as technical solutions that link it to the creators of Bellver Castle.
