Discover the house of "La Moreneta"
Located about 30 miles (50 km) northwest of Barcelona, Monserrat is the 'Serrated Mountain'.
This beautiful and unique rock formation, sawed and sculpted by thousands of years of wind and rain, is the house of "La Moreneta" and the monastery of Montserrat, an important Catholic pilgrimage spot founded in the 12th-century. Aside from its religious and cultural importance, the mountain also boasts unbeatable views from its peaks.
Explore the monastery grounds, hike the numerous trails winding up and around Montserrat, or ride two funiculars to a scenic lookout (Sant Joan's hermit) or the holy grotto.
