Sant Miquel del Fai Monastery, Sant Feliu de Codines

4.0
#3 of 22 in Wildlife in Province of Barcelona
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.

  • Unfortunately it is closed since the provincial government has taken charge of the place to fix it, but still is not doing anything that looks and the place is degrading each day.

  • A beautiful place in a beautiful area. About an hour from the coast in the mountains around Montserat. What a peace and beautiful views. The water features have something special, you walk even "under" the waterfall.

  • This Romanesque iglesia-cueva was probably built at the beginning of the 9th century, its first documentation is about the year 887, where over time they will be venerated by Benedictine monks and in 997 will pass control of the noble Gombau de Besora, (Lord of the castle of Caldes de Montbui), which will kick off the works to improve getting its current structure, where the waterfall of the Nightingale does it have a special charm.
