To less than an hour from Barcelona, the Montserrat mountain and natural park are an impressive natural show. Montserrat has become a wonderful must-see, not only for the views it offers, but also as an important pilgrimage center. This renowned spot that is part of the "Santiago’s path", receives thousands of tourists and pilgrims every year seeking inner peace and be in contact with nature.
In addition, the "black Madonna"; (virgin of Montserrat) and patron saint of Catalonia, has become a claim for most visitors. Both the virgin and the mountains themselves are recognized as icons of Catalan culture and identity.
Montserrat still has an active Monastery of Benedictine monks, the church where daily mass is practiced and the choir of altar boys sings, and an art museum that houses an impressive collection of enormous artistic quality.
It is not only a monumental and heritage group of religious worship, but the site itself has an enormous natural heritage.
The duration of the visit of Montserrat may vary according to your interests and can be combined with some other visit to Barcelona.
