Create an itinerary including Le Prieure de Serrabona
Take in views of the oak forests and surrounding mountains at Le Prieure de Serrabona, a former monastery famed for its marble Romanesque rostrum from the 12th century. The origins of the priory go back to the 10th century, but most of the remaining architecture was constructed in the 12th century, including a transept and three apses, a cloister, and a bell tower. The walls of the nave provide a good example of the thick rubble stone construction. Enter the cloister to find a variety of sculptures in pink marble, all reflecting a high level of craftsmanship. Le Prieure de Serrabona is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • Wonderful location, beautiful romanesque church, fantastic stone carvings.
  • Absolutely magnificent. Small monastery over 1000 years old overlooking a beautiful valley of pines. The gardens are meticulously kept and I loved meandering through the paths admiring the different fig and olive trees, as well as the medicinal plants. The church itself is small and simple but the carvings on the pink marble columns are unique. Definitely worth the drive and half day visit if you are in the area.
