Upon arrival, visit the Monastery, which was founded in the 10th century and still functions to this day, with over 70 monks. It is also well-known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta (visit not guaranteed), who is the patron saint of Catalonia.

Monserrat and hike
Robert B, 28-09-2022
Arturo was an excellent guide. His English is great and he enjoys his job as a guide. The hike was easier than desired but very nice with beautiful views combined with Arturos many facts about the area. I would only add that it would have been nice to be able to see the black virgin up close.
