We stopped along the way to take a picture of a very old bridge. After that we decided to take a walk over the bridge and found a beautiful old church. It was a beautiful sunny day and we enjoyed ourselves

This village was on our planned way, so it certainly was worth the stop at Sant Joan de les Abadesses, to see this beautiful old structure.

This monastery church dating from the 11th century is now the main parish church of Sant Joan. I'd recommend attending a service, even if you are not Catholic. The sound of voices singing resonates in the ancient structure and connects one to its ancient past.

If you're in Sant Joan, there is no way to miss this. If you are driving through the area, definitely make the stop and enjoy a day in a beautifully Medieval Catalonian town. The monastery is the highlight of the town, with it's gorgeous architecture...More

Not only is the city itself a nice place to stop for a visit, but the bridge and surrounding are an interesting visit. Free parking is over the bridge, and to the left, and another left around the corner down a small street. You can...More
