Rehabilitation of the Monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes
The entire monastery is transformed into a museum of its ruins, through the protection and conservation of its remains.
The roofs of the nave of the church, the atrium, the battlements and the finials of the walls have been covered with copper sheets.
A staircase has been built on top of the remains of a former stair; a footbridge has been placed over the atrium excavations at the entrance to the nave of the church; reception services have been installed and the old refectory has been adapted for a small museum.
A meeting centre and a small residence have been built in the abbot's house to host activities that enhance the visit and use of the complex.
Our first visit to the monastery coincided with a day when the clouds were flying low and crossing the bell tower through the windows. Perhaps it was that enigmatic and phantasmagorical vision that we wished to preserve.
