Sant Miquel del Fai, in the Bigas municipality, is one of these places that make part of the collective memory of all the inhabitants of Barcelona and Catalonia in general, since it represented an obligated visit for schools, camps and other organized trips. It is a Benedictine monastery with origins in the tenth and eleventh century.
Its great interest lies in two main aspects: its impossible architecture and its spectacular natural environment. Impossible architecture because the gothic medieval monastery is hemmed in between the jagged rocks of a cordillera Prelitoral Catalana gorge, with suspended arcos and caves that seem to be taken of a fairytale. And spectacular natural environment because it fits in a natural accident where the natural waterfalls of the Tenes river have great prominence
Its most significant spaces are the Casa del Priorat, in the Abadía square, the Sant Miquel church and the Sant Miquel cave, with stalactites, stalagmites and small lakes, between those who highlight the Monges lake, a great sheet of water hidden under the rock. The Tosques cave is another of the fascinating places that, due to the track difficulty, must be done with a guide.
Its religious activity ended in 1936 and already since the nineteenth century was private, organizing events such as wedding, baptisms and communions, plus the tourist visits. However, since June of 2017, this monastery and cultural space started a new and exhilarating step: the Province of Barcelona acquired it for its conversion into a public space. A hotel the Sant Miquel del Fai, like the Augusta Barcelona Vallès, will allow you to visit this privileged corner without limits that had offered us the nature and the history.
