Monestir is applying the the UNESCO worlds cultural heritage list but not willing to welcome its international visitors in any other language than catalan. Apart from the famous portal, this site is very dissappointing because a 19th century construction - anything else has dissapeared - a pity

Like all these places, very hard to find ones hotel. The carved wooden spoons were in the museum. The market gardens, under the bridge were a high point for me.

It was on my list of objectives this year, Catalan monasteries and medieval towns, for a reason. It was closed, the proverbial "siestas", but I waited and was the first to get in at 4:00 when they opened. Ripolll doesn't have much else to offer at this caliber. It is central, next door to the city hall. It is very clean and well preserved, hard to believe this is a 8th century structure. I loved the cloister, very beautiful and clean, impeccable. Other places are ruin, this one here is very well maintained. In the ticket is included the museum access, next door through the Info office. Plain and boring comparing to the monastery. Again, Ripoll the town doesn’t have much to offer but this place here justifies every kilometer of the 100 from Girona.

Well worth the effort to visit this ancient monastery dating back to 8th century. The small town of Ripoll is a fine example of Catalan architecture with lot of winding streets, plaza’s and cafe’s. Most enjoyable trip even in winter months....but wrap up as it is chilly out of the sun
