Trip Planner: Europe / France / Occitanie / Pyrenees-Orientales / Prades / Sightseeing / Le Prieure de Serrabone
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. Using our world travel planner, Prades attractions like Le Prieure de Serrabone can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

L'accès au prieure se fait via une petite route escarpée. Le prieure en lui même a peu d'intérêt, la visite se fait en moins de 10 min et coûte tout de même 4€.

Let's say this place has nothing exceptional for my taste, if not her situation. But I don't see the interest to make a detour for if. On the other hand, the gardens are very interesting!

The SERRABONE Priory... Chance to visit that day without tourist inside... Home smiling, friendly and full of information on the region. Next time we will bring the picnic and discover walks on foot in this jewel of nature and beauty.
Full of curves long road to the top of the mountain and finally, beautiful, breathtaking view - unbelievable experience. Visit in old monastery , partially made from real Roman architecture elements is like trip in time. Fantastic place, silent and magical

Jordi Pujol i RojoIf the views are magnificent, the interior does not detracts. Highlights include the Tribune, made of pink marble. It's worth the climb!
