Once you have reached Montserrat, you immediately understand why it is called the “jagged mountain”. The toponym “Montserrat” was created by the Romans, who called it “Mons Serratus”. Catalans sometimes call it “Montsagrat”, which means “sacred mountain” in their native language.

Montserrat’s Mountains host the popular Benedictine monastery officially named “Santa Maria de Montserrat” along with its beautiful Basilica and museum. This Monastery is a world class visitors attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It takes its name from the stunning mountain it is located on top of. Being perched at about 1200 meters above the valley, a breathtaking view can be enjoyed from the Monastery as well as peculiar rock formations. Some guides even say you can see Mallorca island when it’s sunny!

Every year thousands of visitors come to Montserrat sanctuary to worship Our Lady of Montserrat, also known as La Moreneta, Patron of Catalonia. You will also see the Museum of Montserrat where several works of Dali, El Greco, Monet and Giordano are preserved. In addition, you can see liturgical and archaeological exhibits. Montserrat is believed by some to be the place where the Holy Grail is hidden! However, it is also famous as the house of the L’Escolania, one of the oldest boys’ choirs in Europe with its origin dating back to the 13th century. Several famous personalities made their pilgrimage to Montserrat, including Pope Benedict XIII, Columbus, Cervantes, von Humboldt, King Fernando and Isabella, Carlos I, Felipe II and Louis XIV.
