Sant Miquel del Fai Monastery, Sant Feliu de Codines

Admire a well-preserved display of medieval Spanish architecture at Sant Miquel del Fai Monastery, built into a cliff face wedged within Catalonia's coastal mountains. Make your way up into the canyon to reach the abbey's main square, cut into the rock jutting out over a rugged valley and accented by waterfalls. Marvel at the namesake chapel of Sant Miquel, a 10th-century construction full of Romanesque arches set within the mountain itself, and its surrounding side tunnels and tombs. Afterward, you can stop for a bite to eat or a cold drink at the outdoor priory house, now a terraced restaurant.
