The guide, she knows a lot, very knowledgeable and very pretty. After that we had a dinner in the restaurant, which served a good sirloin and some sweet dessert very typical in CAdaques, they called TAPS. Oh wish can have some right now.

The monastery is a great place to visit, not only because of his historical values, the former ruines are being restorated (work in progress but already a lot to visit), the views at the mountains and the sea are spectacular. Food and service at the restaurant werde also good. Do visit the place, quite sure you will not be disappointed.

Go there on a Tramontana windy day and see a stunning Emporda landscape and Mediterranean sea on both sides. Visit also Santa Elena at the top of the hill (easy accés)

While the various rooms, towers, and impressive nave were interesting to see, the main reason to visit is the location, with its spectacular views and fun mountain roads in all directions. In addition to the main monastery, one can take a steep hike (half an hour each way) to see fortress ruins and even higher views.

The adventure starts to go to the nice area inside the Park Cap de Creus. A very nice view, landscapes and the blue sea down the montains. The monastery is very preserved, it was building at X century and continue to amplified for more 3 centuries. Must be seen! Unmissable!!

Monastery Sant Pere de Rodes is just outside Port de la Selva and it's worth the hair-raising drive up the steep, windy road to get there. The former Benedictine monastery has a stunning view of nearby Port de la Selva and the sea and for four euro you can go through the ruins of the monastery and get a feel... More

We walked up to the hill (note sensible shoes are essential when visiting this). The views are amazing when walking and when up there. Make sure you do have some fleece as it was a bit chilly up there. The place itself is spectacular, very well preserved, modernised a bit and kept in really good condition. Mixture of fortress, castle... More

Very interesting visit to the well renovated ruins of the Monastery "Pere de Rodes". First built in 8th century and being at its height in 13 and 14th century. Politiacl changes changed the fate and the monstry was finally abandoned by the end of 18th century. In our time restored to an excellent etat.Well worth the visit.

We walked up from El Port de la Selva to this astounding, astonishing, soothing spiritual soaring stone monastery. An absolute hilight of our walking holiday on the Costa Brava!
