Visit Catalonia's spiritual center, a 1,000-year-old Benedictine monastery set against spectacular mountain crags. Montserrat was one of the great monastic complexes of the Middle Ages, drawing monks, philosophers and artists from around Europe. Its Romanesque basilica is home to the Black Madonna, Catalonia's patron saint.
WHAT YOU VISIT
Basilica - The monastery's superb Romanesque basilica is decorated with statues of Christ and the 12 Apostles. The somber interior is renowned for the gilded wooden sculpture of Catalonia's patron saint La Moreneta - the Black Madonna of Montserrat. You may choose to join the visitors paying homage to the silver altar dedicated to the Virgin.
Benedictine Monastery Complex - Nestled at the foot of eroded mountain crags, the millennia-old monastery is the focus of Montserrat's Plaza. The monastery's roots date back to a time when isolated hermitages occupied the mountain caves. Montserrat was one of the great monastic complexes of the Middle Ages, drawing monks far and wide who were philosophers, historians, scientists, artists and musicians.
