“Excellent place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I was here with my family on a sunny Sunday and it was magical!
You have a little forest where you can make a picnic, with a great vue on the monastery and a generous open field. Also, there is a little park for kids, with swings, slide and all you need to keep them busy and happy.
And the icing on the cake, at a distance of ~500m of walking, a breathtaking panorama on the Pyrenees opens to you. Also, great place for photos!

“Romanesque art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The old monastery was much more interesting than the new monastery. The views of the Pyrenees on the drive were astounding!
