Sant Pere de Rodes

Majestic Benedictine monastery in the mountains, overlooking the whole Cap de Creus Peninsula.

Former Benedictine monastery and one of the most famous in Catalonia for its valuable architectural ensemble and privileged location overlooking Cap de Creus peninsula.

The most outstanding element of the monastery is the church, considered a jewel of Catalan Romanesque architecture. Built in the 10th-11th centuries as a refuge for pilgrims, it is exceptional for its great height, grandiose entrance, and richly decorated capitals. Also notable are the defence tower, the bell tower, the two cloisters, and the vestiges of pictorial decoration on the walls.
