A magnificent Romanesque complex in the beautiful surroundings of the Empordà plain. Built between the 11th and 13th centuries, it is one of the best conserved examples of the Mediaeval canonical churches in Catalonia today. An elegant bell tower and a cloister that perfectly contains the layout of the rooms around it are the main elements, creating a harmonious complex with a sober beauty complemented by the idyllic Prior’s Garden.

This was the location for scenes from Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, 2006, directed by Tom Tykwer.
