Abandoned the unpleasant walk up from the Parador and collected the car, but it was certainly worth it when we reached the monastery. Very interesting, well restored and atmospheric site, with great views. We spent much longer than we expected, which is usually a good sign.
A short drive from Vic, this refurbished monastery is a must see! Historic, remote, and tranquil, we were there on warm, sunny autumn day and were impressed on how well kept the facilities were. The majestic views of the valley and river bed below were breathtaking.
