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.
Superb views from here. Short walk from the car park. Very steep walk up to the castle so anyone with mobility issues should avoid. Very much worth the climb. Would highly recommend.
Lovely monastery, well worth the detour. Audio guide included, took us about 1.5h of leisurely exploration + drinks in the restaurant. The restaurant is the only thing that could definitely use some improvements, both in service as also in selection department- the views are really amazing up there, with a good restaurant it could really be a wonderful experience. You also have a hiking trail up to the castle ruins - you have a map before you take the path to the monastery. We took the steep one up above the monastery (cca 30min). For that one proper shoes are definitely required, especially if you’re going all the way up to the castle, as there is no trail up there, just rocky terrain. The purple one on the map is mostly flat, wide footpath, quite an easy trail (down cca 25min). That trail stops at the flags section and then if you want to get to the castle proper you will again need hiking shoes (again just rocks).
incredible preserved 11th century Benedictine monastery. Excellent views. Must see if you're in the area.
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.
