Actually, the full original name is “Reial Monestir de Santa Maria de Santes Creus” or “Reial Monestir de Santes Creus”, in the original Catalan language. It is better known as simply el Monestir de Santes Creus, or even just Santes Creus. In English, this would translate as the Royal Monastery of Saint Mary of the Holy Crosses, but only part of the name is officially translated, as Royal Monastery of Santes Creus. In Spanish, it is indeed officially translated as “Real Monasterio de Santes Creus”. See these official pages in English:
