Monastery Sant Pere de Rodes, El Port de la Selva
(4.6/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Excursion very interesting and with a stunning landscape. To go with trucks it is a bit complicated but it is worth the view and the history that has.

  • It is a monastery that even 20 years ago, was completely destroyed. Little by little is has been restored, and is now one of the must-see if visiting the area. Nestled on top of a hill, between Puerto de la Selva and Vilajuïga, is the home of Cabo de Creus and the mountains of the North, border with France. In the nave of the Church, during the summer, classical and Jazz music concerts are held. It is really beautiful!

  • Una visita excel•lent. Recomane la visita guiada val la pena pagar el plus per ella.
  • 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 !
  • Worth a short visit, mainly for its views.
  • Great historical place, worth the visit - the area is stunning!
