Sant Pere De Rodes, Girona Reviews
Incredibly well rebuilt/restored monastery on the mountain overlooking Cadaques. Audio guides are included and highly recommended to get a good idea of what you are looking at. Most original painting and decorations are gone but a few very old partial frescoes and statues remain. Highly recommended if you are in the area. Astounding piece of preserved history. About a 10-15 minute walk from the upper parking in the sun (before 6pm) so bring water.
Don't miss it ! A monastery like a fairy tale castle, on a spectacular mountainside and overlooking the Mediterranean sea. There is a restaurant inside, if lucky to have a table with views to the sea you won't regret the views and experience. Road to the monastery a bit twisting but it worth the detour.
Lovely place to go and see. Amazing views. The tour is worth doing if you enjoy historical information and is included with entrance. The last Tuesday of the month has free admittance but is €5.50 any other time and worth that price. Walks up to the castle is not something you would want to do in sandals.
Stunning location. Well worth a visit. Car parks 5-8 minutes walk away.
Beautiful situated location , Lovely vines in top-quality. So: 5 Stars for quality and Location. But: to take 10 Euros pp. after buying vine for 350.- Euros ... Not friendly. No go.
