Le Prieure de Serrabone, Prades

4.5
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Prades
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.

  • Without a doubt visit favorite this stay. This Priory is outstanding! A visit to make absolutely. Still more beautiful that Saint Michel of top. With in more a very interesting temporary exhibition: the cross of Claude Parent Saura.

  • 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.

  • 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.
