Driving, looking for the monastery is a pleasure in itself because one passes through beautiful natural forest roads where autumnal colors and mushrooms abound, following the meandering Riu Ter. The monastery itself is beautifully situated and as majestic as other famous catalan monasteries. However this one is particularly interesting for the exhibitions proposed within the old walls.

A short drive from Vic, this refurbished monastery is a must see! Historic, remote, and tranquil, we were there on warm, sunny autumn day and were impressed on how well kept the facilities were. The majestic views of the valley and river bed below were breathtaking.

We walked on the special trail from the Parador to the monastery above the lake with glimpses across the water - one hour with photo stops. The monastery has been carefully reconstructed, albeit rather bare but with enough furniture and items to evoke how life must have been 9 centuries ago.

What a fabulous location. We had a quick breakfast at the cafe, tostado and cafe con leche and took the 5... More

Very nicely organised monastery giving a good impression of how life was in the middle ages. Take a time to look at the video explaining about the legend of the monastery.

The small scale reconstruction of medieval life in a monastery. A nice escape from our hectic lifestyle and some beautiful design elements such as the tables in the refectory.
