Day Trip: Montserrat, Barcelona: 50 reviews and 86 photos


Climb <b> <font color=blue> the Mountain MONTSERRAT </b></font>, another symbol of Catalonia - it's a fantastic view! It is a unique natural environment and a religious centre. Montserrat is home to <b><font color=blue> the SACTUARY OF OUR LADY and the BENEDICTINE monastery </b> </font>, which has, for almost 1000 years, served all the pilgrims and visitors who come to this unusual mountain. Come up to <b><font color=blue> the image of Our Lady of Montserrat </b></font>, popularly known as 'dark woman' due to the dark colour of her face. If you put your right hand on the apple she is holding - any wish will come true. For more information: 08199 Montserrat, Espagne; tel: 34 3 835 02 01, fax: 34 835 06 59
