After parking the car it is still a distance to walk. Not a very straining walk by the way. It is worth it. The monestir is renovated and it is very nice to walk through the building. It is not expensive. The views are stunning but ok for the views you do not have to go into the monestir.

Very well preserved and interesting museum, definitely worth a visit. Be sure to go upstairs and see the objects on exhibit there.

Only a short walk from the Paradore de vic sau (4 KM). Beautiful and cheap. There is a good restaurant here which serves wonderful coffee. The building is very interesting with some information in English (take a translator as you'll appreciate it). Generally a very nice walk really.

This sympathetic and careful restoration gives one an insight into the rugged and isolated life of the monks of the early christian church. Charmingly reconstructed monastery, beautiful situation. Highly recommended for a tourist travelling through the area. If you like you can take a very pleasant ramble from the Parador (about 1 hour each way). There is a restaurant on... More

The Spanish government is doing a much better job at negotiating the line between restoration and conservation than France. This building is being maintained in excellent shape but its origins and original construction are still clearly visible. Amazing location on top of a bluff surrounded by river below. Bit of a hike to get there--think of the monks and those... More

Monastery has been extensively restored but well worth a visit. Location is superb at the end of a narrow spit of land. Possible to walk from nearby Parador but easier to drive to car park and then a pleasant 10 minute stroll.

There's a bridge that was built in the 11th century, Roman ruins that were incorporated into an ancient house (formerly of the Montcada family, now structurally exposed), an Eposcipal Palace and museum, and several beautiful churches of which the Cathedral is the subject of this review. The cathedral dates mostly to the 14th and 15th centuries with a sad past.... More
