Beautiful place to enjoy nature together with history. Well restored place with cave and waterfall. Mostly you look outside, that is not a working monastry

Sant Miquel del Fai is a great day hike outside of Barcelona that is not touristy. Nice easy hike with beautiful views of the waterfall and monastery. We went there with Terra Diversions for a price of 74 Euros each: http://www.terradiversions.com/eng/StMiquelHikeTour.asp. Well worth the cost, which includes lunch. Ask for Albert, he was an amazing guide.

The access road to this place is very challenging for an average driver and the monastery is really in the middle of nowhere. Despite the web advertising that said that it is open both Saturdays and Sundays, when we arrived in there on a Saturday, the cave was closed and there were only very few people around the monastery.

Hidden Gem. NO tourists. Waterfalls, hiking, great views, caves and overall a day long magical tour done w. terra diversion bikes from Barcelona. The monastery is abandoned, the buildings are very old and picturesque and the waterfalls and mini falls and drips are just pure joy. On a windy, sunny day we felt like we got treated to some lovely... More

We did a tour with Terra Diversion Bikes from Barcelona for about $80 I think to St. Miquel. The tour included transportation there and a stop in a small Spanish village with hot springs. Then we hiked to St. Miquel an abandoned monastery at the top of a good, stiff cliff. We had lovely vistas of waterfalls, rock formations, plants... More

Areally great non touristy place with a magical drive to a hidden monastery with fantastic views. All around are magic walks. The best features are the huge waterfalls and wonderful caves. A top hidden destination not to be missed. Great for everyone including kids just keep hold of their hands! The drops are huge.

Beautiful mountain, waterfalls, cool springs, caves and well prepared for visitors to walk through without difficulties. There's a playground for children and parents, you can bring your own picnic basket or purchase food at a little cafe at the playground. It's a place worth visiting and bring your bathing suits just in case you might want to swim down the... More
