Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Girona / Costa Brava / El Port de la Selva / Monasterio de Sant Pere de Rodes
Often described as an unforgettable beauty, Monasterio de Sant Pere de Rodes is a 10th century monastery that stands watch over the sea. The structure is somewhat ruined, with just columns and the foundation intact, but the remaining portions still offer a striking visual. 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. There’s also a cafe here when you need refreshment.

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.

Fantastic spot. Magnificent historic building. There are two roads to achieve the place, the best views are from Port de la Selva, really amazing but the road is full of hairpin curves and blind curves.
