    A jewel of Romanesque art. And if you're also a lover of legends, not to be missed is the centre d' interpretació del Comte Arnau, a nobleman always present in the legends of the Ripollès, which seems that it maintained relations with one of the Abbesses of the monastery. Mix of history and legend, which may not leave indifferent

    Former Benedictine Monastery founded in 887 by the County of Urgell. The Church, on a Latin cross plan, is composed of a single nave, close to a remarkable sanctuary with five segments on which comes to lean back an apse Central, surrounded by two apses, the whole being complemented by an apsidiole outside at the end of each arm of the transept. The current lines of the building are the ones that have been defined in the 11th, and then in the 15th century. See: the beautiful cloister with columns supporting the rich Museum and historiated capitals: altarpieces, lapidary collection, beautiful statuary, paintings, silver and liturgical vestments. A must visit in the area.

    The visit is €3 and it is worth. Very large and beautiful church. The Museum contains various interesting elements.

  • It is worth visiting the monastery of Sant Joan de les Abadesses, Church, cloister, Museum. And also an introductory video with its history. A bit of the history of Catalonia.
