Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Barcelona / Sant Feliu de Codines / Sant Miquel del Fai Monastery
Admire a well-preserved display of medieval Spanish architecture at Sant Miquel del Fai Monastery, built into a cliff face wedged within Catalonia's coastal mountains. Make your way up into the canyon to reach the abbey's main square, cut into the rock jutting out over a rugged valley and accented by waterfalls. Marvel at the namesake chapel of Sant Miquel, a 10th-century construction full of Romanesque arches set within the mountain itself, and its surrounding side tunnels and tombs. Afterward, you can stop for a bite to eat or a cold drink at the outdoor priory house, now a terraced restaurant. Put Sant Miquel del Fai Monastery into our Sant Feliu de Codines trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Sant Feliu de Codines.

Fortunately, a nice hike to leave the monastery to join the bottom of the waterfall. Hike of medium difficulty, provide good shoes and drink. Beautiful scenery and chance to be refresh in the canyons at the bottom. Without regret, the closure of the site allowed to escape the crowds and have an afternoon free and sports!

Within the park there is also a picnic area and you can spend a perfect day.

Exceptional landscapes, small waterfalls (Tenes Gorgs, Gorg's pink Bauma, etc.), and a tranquility resulting unusual to little more than half an hour from Barcelona. Arriving at the village of Fai Riells already gives us the pattern of things to come: a marked change of the landscape, after crossing the Vallès for the C17 and deviate to the height of La Ametlla, where are you with pretty dense forests and a canon of red soil that seems removed from another region and transplanted here. Leaving the car in the parking lot there at the height of the bus (one stop on the street, well indicated) terminal you can begin to make pathways to the monastery, following the Madella cami, and enjoying the beautiful landscape of the waterfalls on the other side, either down to the small watercourse to see (Gorg) jumps from below. Passing through the town are other equally interesting paths. Consult detailed maps in the Wikiloc. A day of enjoyment which must be completed in one of the fine restaurants of Riells.
