Montserrat Monastery, Montserrat

(4.6/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
A Benedictine abbey perched on the craggy rock face of Montserrat mountain, Montserrat Monastery serves as one of Catalonia's most important spiritual sites. Alongside the basilica and monastery, the grounds also feature a sanctuary famous for hosting the image of the patron saint of Catalonia, Our Lady of Montserrat. Featuring grand Gothic and Renaissance architecture, the basilica is a work of art in itself, but also houses a museum with paintings and sculptures from the likes of Picasso, El Greco, and Dali. If you're comfortable with heights, make the trip by cable car for superb views of the mountain and surrounding area.

  • From the Rocky of Montserrat at Montserrat monastery went on tour was originally Black Madonna had purpose, my eyes balanced! It is the mountain's elevation is 1236 m and the cost is not, but in great shape. Monastery of very large scale built into the Rocky hillside. Christian worship in the Church of the Black Madonna, in the Cathedral of monastery patron our Lady of watching from a height of three stories. Have to accept long queues to see done until this off-season is so lucky and wait for about 10 minutes, and you. Visit the monastery of Montserrat. Is it inspiring.
