Abbey Palace of Sant Joan de les Abadesses

This 14C edifice stands on a small square in front of the church. It is depicted by an interior patio with sculpted capitals and large arcades and hosts contemporary art exhibitions. It also houses a visitor's centre devoted to the "myth of Count Arnau", an imaginary evil character, inspired in part by popular Catalan literature.
