Come hiking in the unique setting of the Mount Montserrat Natural Park, visit the Benedictine abbey and hear the famous boys' choir, the Escolania.
Montserrat literally means "sawtooth mountain" in reference to its jagged rock formations. It is known as the home of the Benedictine abbey of Santa Maria de Montserrat and its famous Black Madonna, 'La Moreneta'. The visit begins with a tour of the monastery.
