First: THEY DO NOT TAKE BANK CARDS. We arrived unaware that we were low on euros and didn't have the cash to get in. They folks working the desk conferenced and then said, "for you, it's ok."

It's not a big place, but it's still worth the trip. A nice calm atmosphere. The ideal place for meditation or a nice slow picnic with friends or Family.

Well worth the long and twisty drive up into the mountains - the priory itself is unexpected and beautiful - the gardens are a delight.

This is a surprising little old (but not ruined) priory on the French side of the Pyrenees, near Prades and below the Canigou. It's about 40 mins west of Perpignan, but it's better accessed via the small scenic and winding road north of Amelie les Bains, but not if you're in a hurry! The Priory itself is hidden several km...

We stopped here on a hike up and down the surrounding mountains. What a serene place nested in the Pyrenees. There are printed guides in numerous languages. Views all around are fabulous
