Monastery Sant Pere de Rodes, Figueres

(700+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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 first thing we must make sure to visit it is to be open... and only is from June 1 to December 31. If you didn't know, you can compensate you upload from Vilajuïga and stop at el balcó de l ' Empordà (at right before hand), which has an incredible panoramic view, then down towards the Port de la Selva

  • A wonderful setting with spectacular views of the history of the place is very interesting, reconstruction seems a little exaggerated but allows you to see clearly what is really old and the reconstructed worthwhile visit deserves

  • 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!
