Treat yourself to a fervent mixture of beauty and spirituality in this tour to the iconic Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey. Located atop the namesake mountain, the Benedictine monastery is one of the oldest in the world, dating back to the 11th century, and functions even to this day with about 70 monks. It is a Catholic pilgrimage site of great importance thanks to the presence of the Virgin of Montserrat la Moreneta or the Black Virgin - one of the few black Madonnas present across Europe and highly revered as a religious symbol.
Also known as the ‘serrated mountain’, the Montserrat mountain offers spectacular views of Barcelona as well as Penedès and is a great place to hike as well. If you want to soak in the transcendental spirituality of the Abbey, you can head to solemn Basilica, catch sight of the stunning Black Madonna, experience the Escolania which is one of the oldest musical choirs in Europe or attend one of their incredible masses. And if spirituality is not your calling, the ravishing beauty of the entire place will definitely appeal to you with its astonishing panorama of greenery, cities and the Mediterranean Sea. No matter your reason for visiting Montserrat, we guarantee that this delightful mountain range will give you some unforgettable moments!
