    Very near to Barcelona to the north there is Montserrat, the Catalan Sacred Mountain. The highest part of this astonishing grey mountain range is 1.235 meters high. The place is very popular among Catalan people due to religious reasons. The Patroness of Catalonia is Montserrat. The Monastery of Montserrat was set up here in the XIth century even though the present buildings date from the XVIth century. There is not only the possibility to visit the church but also do nice promenades.
