Sant Pere de Rodes Monastery
The views from Sant Pere de Rodes over the bay of El Port de le Selva are breath taking!
Throughout the 1990s the monastery underwent a massive restoration, and now it is fabulous.
We always take people here when they come out to visit and everyone loves it (especially the view).
Perhaps that is why it is one of Catalonia’s most visited ancient monuments.
It is also worth visiting the very near by pre-Romanesque church of Santa Creu de Rodes...
...and the ruins of the village of Santa Creu de Rodes (1 kilometre north of the monastery).
