Montserrat and the Monastery

Montserrat is located 50 kilometers from Barcelona. It is a 1,225 meters high mountain, with a mysterious and beautiful shape.

After Santiago de Compostela and El Camino, Montserrat is the second most important pilgrmigae center in Spain. The Monastery was founded in 1025. Shepherds had a vision, they followed it and the Black Virgin, “La Monereta” was discovered. The Monastery of Montserrat was built to commemorate that vision. La Monereta or Black Madonna is Catalonia´s patron since 1881.
