Sant Miquel del Fai Monastery, Sant Feliu de Codines

(3.9/5 based on 190 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.

  • Already the entrance from the parking is peculiar, with a bridge of stone very nice. We must monitor the schedule, was the second attempt we did because they close at 5 (we went in October). The grounds were surprised, both for the beauty of the buildings as the landscape and the promenade. In the first zone are buildings, a pond with swans, an audiovisual exhibition, and a church excavated in the gemstone. Later there is a cave which is accessed down many stairs, but it is worthwhile. The road main passes behind a waterfall, is surrounded of trees and with the leaves of colors of the autumn is spectacular. Picnic with bar area, you can buy there or take the food from home. Area of swings for small children. We loved the good care that everything is true you pay input is but there are many sites where you pay and are all neglected, here is not the case. The views of erosion under the monastery are spectacular. The road ends at a church and another cave which can be accessed with Hull (not for children under 7 years). In short, a highly recommended walk that my 6 year old son did without problem.
