Le Prieure de Serrabone, Prades

(4.6/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Take in views of the oak forests and surrounding mountains at Le Prieure de Serrabone, a former monastery famed for its marble Romanesque rostrum from the 12th century. The origins of the priory go back to the 10th century, but most of the remaining architecture was constructed in the 12th century, including a transept and three apses, a cloister, and a bell tower. The walls of the nave provide a good example of the thick rubble stone construction. Enter the cloister to find a variety of sculptures in pink marble, all reflecting a high level of craftsmanship.

  • This place is really beautiful and very well maintained. The outdoor gardens are superb, all plantations are very neat. Outside this Priory is beautiful, inside is not no more left. The weather and especially without wind, the picnic is possible and very pleasant. Many locations are available with tables and benches. The visit is certainly not expensive but fast enough. Of the order of about 45 minutes if one takes his time.
