Welcome to Montserrat Mountain. We escape the hustle & bustle and travel 60km from Barcelona. The mountain has many claims to fame, one being the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia, represented by a small, black Madonna kept in a shrine at the mountaintop monastery. She was discovered in a cave not far from the monastery, which was founded in 1025 by Benedictine monks. The highest summit of Montserrat is called Sant Jeroni (Saint Jerome) and stands at 1,236 meters (4,055 feet) above sea-level.
