4.6/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Often described as an unforgettable beauty, Monastery Sant Pere de Rodes is a 10th century monastery that stands watch over the sea. The structure is somewhat ruined, with just columns and the foundation intact, but the remaining portions still offer a striking visual. A modest museum on site offers more details and history about the area. There are plenty of chances for great photos, as you’ll find yourself high in the mountains surrounded by aromatic trees, with mist rising from the sea. There’s also a cafe here when you need refreshment. To visit Monastery Sant Pere de Rodes on your trip to El Port de la Selva, use our El Port de la Selva tour planner.

  • So much for the location, splendid on a promontory at 500m altitude in the natural park of Cap de Creus, as by the monumental complex which houses the monastery. Although in its more than 1,000-year history it has suffered all kinds of ups and downs, what remains, especially the Church and the towers are of impressive beauty. Visit must for any lover of art and history. You will enjoy.

  • The monastery itself is well worth a visit. The views from the area around it are superb. While you're there and if you feel "fit", the views from the 'castel' are spectacular but the climb is quite rocky & steep in parts so, best tackled with decent shoes, it will be much more comfortable & safe !
  • Great historical place, worth the visit - the area is stunning!
