Montserrat, the Natural Park is a multi-peaked mountain shaped by the wind and rain and that is where it's name comes from, as it looks like a saw, the serrated mountain.
Almost to the top we find Santa Maria de Montserrat, the monastery, Catalonia's most important religious retreat. Inside the Basilica we can visit the Virgin of Montserrat (the black virgin), is Catalonia's Virgin.
Montserrat is an inspiration for Gaudi than he adapts in Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo and La Pedrera.

Francisco provided a fun and highly informative tour of Monserrat within 4 hours. He was very patient but efficient in pacing the tour to our interests. He also took excellent photos which he sent to us afterwards. Highly recommend this tour!
