This cultural route starts at the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, located high above the sea at the end of a steep, windy road offering spectacular vistas. The rocky landscape of Cap de Creus, the whitewashed houses of the seaside towns, the large bays of Roses and El Port de la Selva, and the immensity of the Mediterranean spread out below this privileged place, considered one of the best viewpoints along the Catalan coast. At the end of the road, pause for a while to admire the surroundings. To the left looking towards the sea is the hermitage of Santa Helena de Rodes; to the right, the huge monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes; and on the highest part of the mountain range, the castle of Sant Salvador. The first stop is the pre-Romanesque hermitage, crowned with a bell gable. Then visit the monastery, the jewel of Romanesque architecture in Catalonia, with a unique atmosphere in each of its various spaces: the church, the bell tower, the two cloisters, the crypt, the wine cellar, the monks’ cells, and other monastic outhouses. After that, a 25-minute walk brings you to the castle of Sant Salvador, a ruined fortress dating from the 11th-13th centuries, located in a place commanding some of the best views in the country.
