Monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes
The monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes has historically been considered a typical example of Romanesque construction in Catalonia. Its origins date back to the 1st century after Christ. According to legend, Christians who came from Rome were shipwrecked in the bay and promised to build the monastery as an offering to God in this place. Christian doctrine understands Sant Pere de Rodes as one of the most significant monasteries. The first official mention of the monastery dates back to the year 878.
