a few hours outside of barcelona in spain, there is a monastery on top of a mountain known as montserrat. literally translated into “serrated mountain”, the name describes the rugged terraine that surrounds this place of worship. monks still reside here and it is a popular place to go on an excursion.
known as santa maria de monserrat, this basilica is a place of pilgrimage for many catholics.
everyday at noon, a boys choir perform a few pieces for the tourists and pilgrims that come. they even sell CD’s of their music at the gift shop!
across the monsastery, there is cafeteria to feed you and a museum about the history of this famous place of pilgrimage. on a nice day, you could hike and spend a whole day enjoying your surroundings. definitely worth taking a day trip to!
