Sant Miquel del Fai Monastery, Sant Feliu de Codines

(4/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
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.

  • I went here with a hiking group for a day trip from Barcelona. Monastery itself and the surrounding caves and water fall are very nice, but best are the views.  more »
  • We were surprised that they were €8 per person... 3-5, would be the right thing, then, could be better care or with better services. They give you a pamphlet and later! As very nice spot being below the waterfall, and enter a cave (the other was closed because of rain was flooded) with explanations very simple and little enriching. There is an auditorium with permanent exhibitions, very loose. The parking is pretty left of pavement. You can see the waterfall before access to the enclosure, if you want to save the 8€. You could be better exploited by that price. Still worth a go, better if it has rained the day before.

  • live relatively near the monastery, but always goes the same, so close to this that never pensmaos to visit it, the reality is that personally had visited the place with the school, already too many years ago, once there, remembered small, had nothing to do with today, is a beautiful place, very good care and spectacular for those who do not know what to expect , it is worth to spend a morning there, recommended totl.
