Visit Montserrat...yes I know is a tipical visit, but this section is for that.IS INCREDIBLE TO FIND IT the middle of the country, and really the mount is like a big knife.
Is a Monastery between the extrange stones of Montserrat knife mount.
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.
These mountain ranges are 4,000 feet high, and it has some other churches/monasteries besides the main one.
The complex has about ten other buildings, all which have restaurant, shops for gifts, food to buy,etc besides a hotel
What a fascinating place, the mountain has the most unusual shapes and formations. The monastery is beautiful and the whole place just fill you with wonder and awe.
