The monastery is perched on the Cliffside on a ledge of rock, which is amazing . Buildings and structures date back to the 1100s, incredible. Not the easiest place to explore, walk about , unless you are fit.

I went here with a hiking group for a day trip from Barcelona. Monastery itself and the surrounding caves and water fall are very nice, but best are the views.

Did the tour. It is in catalan, but free of charge and very interesting. Without the tour still interesting to visit. Very nice views of the valley. Nice waterfall and cave to visit. There is a picnic place so bring some food (we didn't)

We have visited sant miquel del fai in 2016 winter. It is an amazing nature spot that I recommend to visit. There is a nice offroad route next to the monastery, Bertí cliffs! You will need a 4x4 vehicle.

We drove there. The drive itself is amazing - winding up the mountains with fresh cold air. Can't go wrong with Google Maps. It is quite a distance from Barcelona - don't think it is a very popular spot with foreign tourists because there isn't...More

This historic old monastry is reached by a winding road with fantastic views. Visitors need to be good walkers to get around the site as there are some steep climbs. The entrance had a notice to say that the restaurant was open between 11 and...More

Beautiful place to enjoy nature together with history. Well restored place with cave and waterfall. Mostly you look outside, that is not a working monastry

Hi Karen, I do not recommend you to visit St. Miquel del Fai by public transport and I think that now there is some road under construction. You should rent one day car! Alternative: You can visit Montserrat monastery by... More
