Serra de Montserrat Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 181 photos
Montserrat is the most saint place in Catalonia region. It is mostly visited by day-trippers from Barcelona and is a point of pilgrimage route. Most famous places here – the unusual looking mountains and monastery.
Constructions of religic objects in Montserrat Mountains started as early as 880, after visitation and mysterious appearance of Virgin Mary image. Nowadays the monastery constructed about 800 meters above the sea level is a home of this saint image.
Mountains itself took the name from two separate words “mont” and “serra”, meaning “jagged mountains”. Actually mountains look like teeth due to form and polished surface. Geologic information tells that these mountains long time ago were under the sea level, water polarized and shaped them.
- Pros:Unique experience to see unusual mountains and Saint place.
- Cons:If it is hot, it is hot even 1236 meters high :)
- In a nutshell:I think it is a must when visiting Catalonia.
It is nice construction to get to Monterrat monastery (it lifts 800 meters high). The using Aeri is quite nice... more travel advice
