Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.

It is a little used road mountain high with approximately 60 min walk and always great views. In the middle of this solitude, the Abbey Church was built on the "Gutenberg" 1000 years ago with great preserved capitals in a small cloister, as well as with a gallery with many very fine in marble and only types motifs. This was placed in the nave. You can read the changeful history of the building at wikipedia, that should not be repeated. At the junction of the road in the Valley, there is a point of sale of local producers where one can strengthen themselves before or after proper. Travelling from the coast of ca. 45 min. It's worth.show original
