This is an impressive building which has a prominent tower and dominates the central square of the town. Unfortunately, we were only having a short break in Ripoll and discovered that the Monastery didn't open until later that afternoon. Consequently, we were unable to see...More

Largely intact but often modified, this abbey is very impressive. It was built initially in 880 and contains a number of artifacts. It is certainly worth exploring while in Ripoll.

Nice monastery in the center of Ripoll, with a beautiful ancient carved entrance door. The garden and the tombs under the altar can be visited too.

The carved façade and the cloister, both from the 12th century, are impressive -- and very photogenic. The quiet and dark basilica is impressively austere and chilly, perfect for a sunny day break. Ipads with extra info are available from the tourism office next door,...More

The jewel of this abbey is the main gate and the cloister. It is a must see if you are in the zone and like medieval architecture and art.
