MONTSERRAT IS MORE THAN SPIRITUALITY
The Sanctuary of Montserrat is a sacred place known to all Catalans, such as the Virgin of Montserrat, patron saint of Catalonia. Called «La Moreneta».
Did you know that, under the main square of Santa Maria, there is an art collection that can be enjoyed without waiting and with total peace of mind? You can see the collection of impressionism, modernism and contemporary artists.
Like this painting by Caravaggio made without the “Foderato technique”, that is, keeping the original fabric; or the works of the famous modernist and Catalan artist like Casas; Picasso, Dalí or Tàpies, among others and the children’s choir of «La Escolanía de Montserrat».
Meanwhile, during the months of July and August, several organ concerts will be offered. Check with us.
We will also visit this recently restored Romanesque church, dated from the 11th century «Santa Cecilia», patron of music, located in one of the most beautiful places on the mountain of Montserrat.
Montserrat is more than spirituality, it is also art, music and history surrounded by natural environments.
We will walk through the area where we find modernist towers and buildings at the foot of Tibidabo.
We will finish the route in this little known place with 10 centenary arches that Gaudi built between 1903 and 1905, which were a pilot test of the work that he later developed in the Park Güell Gaudí.
