Often described as an unforgettable beauty, Monasterio de Sant Pere de Rodes is a 10th century monastery that stands watch over the sea.

A modest museum on site offers more details and history about the area. There are plenty of chances for great photos, as you’ll find yourself high in the mountains surrounded by aromatic trees, with mist rising from the sea.

  • Well worth a visit. Twisty roads on route and on exit. Easy parking. Well maintained without ruining it's age and historic value. Clean, friendly staff and terrific photo opportunities.
