Montserrat Monastery & Museum Entrance with Audioguide
Enjoy access to the Montserrat museum, home to the great collection of art managed by the Abbey of Montserrat, and containing various works by Caravaggio, El Greco, Rusiñol, Casas, Picasso, Dali, Monet and spanning a vast chronological period of time. The Audiovisual Space at Montserrat is a modernized archive that educates those who visit the Sanctuary about the history, origin, and meaning of Montserrat and it's continued purpose.
Visit the Basilica of Montserrat, which houses the Virgin of Montserrat, who was the patron saint of Catalonia. The little monastery first gained fame and recognition when it started receiving pilgrims and visitors who spread the word of the miracles and wonders performed by the Virgin.
Though the Monastery has modernized, it still caters to the needs of the pilgrims that stop here. You can also admire from a distance the famous 12th century Romanesque carving of the Verge Moreneta, better known as the Black Madonna. The treasures within the monastery are almost as breathtaking as the views from it. Should the time of year be opportune, you may get to enjoy the beautiful performance by the Escolania of Montserrat, the children’s choir at the sanctuary.
