The monastery and the natural charms of Sant Miquel del Fai They mean an interesting family day trip from Barcelona. Just 45 minutes away by car from the city following the C-59 road.
Sant Miquel del Fai is located on the outskirts of the town of Sant Feliu de Codines and in its natural enclave is a 15th-century abbey hanging from a photogenic boulder. Its history dates back to the 10th century when some friars settled in a cave where the monastery that we can admire today was built.
The enclosure offers privileged views of the Berting Cingles, cliffs of steep slope presided over by the course of the Tenes river that we can observe from the magnificent watchtower of the monastery of Sant Miquel del Fai.
The monastery of Sant Miquel del Fai
The entrance to the site - visit to the monastery, caves and natural environment - cost us 8 euros and offers an audiovisual where the history of the monastery and the legends that always accompany such historical places are told.
The best thing about Sant Miquel del Fai is undoubtedly walking through its surroundings and admire the imposing rocky escarpments of Bertí as well as the large waterfall that presides over the narrow orographic profile of the valley.
The road is easily accessible and suitable for wheelchairs or baby carriages with the exception of visiting the caves. These offer a unique look at the architecture formed by water throughout history. The stalagmites and stalagmites we find in Sant Miquel are no big deal but without a doubt the labyrinthine structure of the Las Toscas cave means a fun adventure for the kids. In this same cave you will see that a person in charge of the center coordinates visits and offers protective helmets.
