We went hiking to the monastery from the parador de Vic-Sau (beautiful walk) and were impressed by the beauty of the monastery. It really feels like it's lost in time as it almost hasn't been changed since the 11th century. With the fog that was there in December it really looked magical.

You can choose the longer easier path or a wild and rocky shorter path to access this monastery which is built on the outcrop of a bend in the river. You will be rewarded by your 10-15 minute walk by the old monastery that contains some interesting facts, a short video of its history and boasts a most impressive chapel.... More

You really feel like you're at the end of the world when you park up and walk the 10 minutes to the monastery. Built in the 11th century on the ruins of a 9th century castle, this monastery is set in a really impressive and imposing location, at the edge of cliffs that drop for what must be several hundred...

If you are in Vic, it worth a short visit to this Monestir which was built 1000 years ago! In an incredible spot with wonderful views, deserve a visit

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.

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
