We walked on the special trail from the Parador to the monastery above the lake with glimpses across the water - one hour with photo stops. The monastery has been carefully reconstructed, albeit rather bare but with enough furniture and items to evoke how life must have been 9 centuries ago. Recommend one watches the video (in a small exterior... More

We knew nothing about the Monestir before we stayed at the Parador nearby, and as we didn't want a big breakfast we thought we would take the short drive 3km, up to the site which also had a cafe. What a fabulous location. We had a quick breakfast at the cafe, tostado and cafe con leche and took the 5... More

Very nicely organised monastery giving a good impression of how life was in the middle ages. Take a time to look at the video explaining about the legend of the monastery.

The small scale reconstruction of medieval life in a monastery. A nice escape from our hectic lifestyle and some beautiful design elements such as the tables in the refectory.

Nice short walk from the restaurant-cafe to the actual 'monestir'. Amazing views if there's no fog!!! The building itself is a cool travel to the past and a history lesson. Big garden where children can play aftef the visit Cheap entrance and discount for students

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
