Montserrat Museum, Montserrat
(4.4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Montserrat Museum offers a collection of 1,300 pieces, ranging from an Egyptian sarcophagus to works by Picasso and Dali. Located in an old monastery, this museum’s collection was started by a monk who traveled extensively through the Middle East, and has since been expanded by private donations. Tour through the six permanent collections as well as the constantly changing special exhibits. Highlights include archaeology of the biblical Middle East, with objects from Mesopotamia, Egypt, Cyprus, and Israel; paintings from the 13th to the 18th century, including works by Caravaggio, Tiepolo, Berruguete, Morales, Luca Giordano, and El Greco; and 19th- and 20th-century Catalan paintings and sculptures from Picasso, Dali, Degas, Miro, Monet, Rusiñol, and Casas. See varying depictions of the Black Madonna of Montserrat, Byzantine and Slavic icons, and gold worship objects from the 15th through 20th centuries. To wrap up your stay, stop by the gift shop.

  • Underlines this place. You must take but enough time to get everything to work.

  • Prado, The Louvre, The Uffizi. Wonderful, huge museums. This is a small but very interesting. Firstly, met with Spanish artists, hitherto unknown to us means. visiting the Museum is not in vain, because what could be better than to discover anything new? Level pictures pretty decent-Nonell', Rahon Qasas, Roma Ribera, Joan Brull. Secondly, there are the famous names-Picasso, Chagall, Caravaggio ... Thirdly, surprised the presence of paintings of Russian origin Olga Saharoff. Decent picture gallery. Recommend to all lovers of art.

  • Beautiful! Not to be missed! The ideal is to get a train and go on their own; is more into account. It's worth a lot. Beautiful ride. The monastery is very beautiful. The landscape is beautiful. We took a walk in the mountains. I felt in heaven. Everything is beautiful. We took a funicular that climbs the mountain. Fantastic visuals. Lota lot. The ideal is to buy a ticket in advance. Visited in October 2016

  • An amazing place and great cultural experience, do go into the church and check out every square inch of this place, also we walked right out to the point but just make sure you have some really comfortable shoes on as it doesn't look far to walk out to the other side and look back but it is much further and I thought but it is so worthwhile. There happened to but a food market on while I was there and it was amazing to try all the different flavours and we bought some goodies to have with wine back at our hotel. We had lunch at the restaurant up there but I found it to be very ordinary and wouldn't recommend it, (Buffet Restaurant)
