Benedictine Monastery

The architectural complex of Sant Pere de Rodes, declared a World Heritage site by the UNESCO, is formed by a Benedictine monastery that, like the church, dates from the 1Oth century, as well as a belfry and defensive tower that were added on in the 12th century. From here you will enjoy a beautiful view of the Pyrenees and Cap de Creus.

Monastério de Sant Pere de Rodes
Silvio Rocha (Rio de Janeiro/Brasil) - agosto de 2008 (19 Sep 2008 - 03:20)
Experimentei emoção e muita felicidade ao visitar o monastério de Sant Pere de Rodes! Magnífica construção medieval, encravada na rocha e dela construída, suas dimensões são inacreditáveis para a época em que foi erguida. Reaberto em 1994 pelo Rei de Espanha, este fabuloso conjunto arquitetônico ainda presenteia o visitante com uma vista maravilhosa do Mediterrâneo e suas longínquas cidadelas da Costa Brava. Recomendo esse passeio a todos aqueles que amam o belo, o inusitado, o histórico! Ah, no verão europeu é melhor ainda!!!
