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. Le Prieure de Serrabone is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Prades Edition.

With in more a very interesting temporary exhibition: the cross of Claude Parent Saura.
Une bonne organisation pour la visite de ce petit monument perdu dans les contreforts du Canigó. Sa tribune en marbre justifie du déplacement de même que le cadre et l'environnement. La route d'accès ... more »A good organization for the visit to this small monument lost in the foothills of the Canigó. His marble tribune justifies moving as well as the framework and environment. The access road is narrow and winding, caravans and camping cars will sometimes have to Park to give way to other vehicles. Sufficient parking on arrival. A visit to complete the gardens that does not demand a lot of time. Discover or review as top Michel (3 km from Prades) St & St Martin of the Canigó initially Casteil near Vernet baths.
le jubé est remarquable, la vue du cloitre aussi mais l'exposition actuelle est déconcertante il faut l'avouer more »the jube is remarkable, the view of the cloister also but the current exhibition is disconcerting admittedly
Wonderful location, beautiful romanesque church, fantastic stone carvings.
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
After a good climb by car we are completely disoriented. On a small hill in the middle of a huge forest he quietly awaits the visitor for centuries. Very well preserved. Very relaxing. Interior of course to see also and his pt botanical garden.
Very beautiful and so worth a omrit but watch out for rocks on the course who regularly roll down
Nice but tiny. Very good guide. The podium in the Church is carved in Romanesque style very nice.
