Monastery Sant Pere de Rodes, Figueres

4.6
#2 of 7 in Things to do in Figueres
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 Figueres, use our Figueres tour planner.

    The large building gives a good idea of the size and significance of the monastery. Unfortunately it is completely cleaned up on a few elements (the term is robbed better) has been. Be sure guests can the views of the mountains and the sea. The ascent to the overlying Castel is worth because of its views when the weather is good again!

    A very impressive monastery to the place where it stands. Can easily be reached by car in a hilly area. You park your car and continue on foot for about 300 metres. The walk is flat and suitable for children. The view is really nice and the imposing monastery. You can't forget your camera! You can visit the monastery for a modest fee (€ 4.50) following the explanations of the audio guide. Forget the Italian though. We went on a hot day and I must say that we were very well because the Interior of the building is cool! For those who want a dining room with stunning views there is also restaurant.

    Breathtaking views, impressive monastery. Input of €5.5 for older children and free with the super club 3. Everything is very well explained, with audio guide or brochure. You can also hire Guided paying very little more. Super restoration.

  • Awesome place to visit and spend a few hours at! Great for photos.
  • Incredible ancient stone monastery in a rural section of the Costa Brava. Worth a visit- the views from the top are incredible.
  • Impressive and outstanding Romanesque monastery in one of the most beautiful areas of the country
  • 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 !
  • Absolutely worth a visit.
