The mountain Montserrat with the Benedictine Monastery Santa Maria de Montserrat is located about 45 km northwest of Barcelona. Already from far away, the 1,236 meter high mountain offers a magnificent view. Even from the top you can experience the panoramic view far into the hinterland of Catalonia.
The massif is surrounded by a beautiful nature park. Even the journey by car or motorcycle on well-developed and winding serpentines is a taste of what awaits you on the summit of Montserrat. Many of the tourists come here only because of the statue of the Black Madonna, patron saint of Catalonia. Once you arrived at Montserrat Monastery, you can see an indescribable view all the way to Barcelona. However, the view of the city itself is not possible because of the Conserolla Mountains.
