Benedictine Monastery Santa Maria de Montserrat


    

The home of the statue of the Black Madonna (patron saint of Catalonia) is inside the Benedictine Monastery Santa Maria de Montserrat. Located a short distance northwest of Barcelona, the monastery is perched high atop the mountain Montserrat. It's both the view from above and the statue that lure most to the monastery.

Social Media Description

Have you ever explored the area surrounding Barcelona?

Since we had visited the city several times before, during our 2017 transatlantic cruise we decided to explore the neighboring area. From the port, we hopped on the shuttle to get us near the train station. Following a short walk, ticket purchase, and wait on the train platform, we boarded and were on our way. It was a very easy and inexpensive journey that brought us high upon Montserrat, the mountain. From there we spent much of the day exploring the Benedictine monastery.
