More Information
The major attraction within the basilica is the wooden sculpture of the Black Madonna, also known as The Virgin of Montserrat and the Patron Saint of Catalonia.

Other attractions include an art museum, the views, the Escolania (boy's choir,) a daily market and the numerous hiking trails which surround the abbey.

The Abbaye de Montserrat is situated 45 km north-west of Barcelona and can be accessed on via train or car on an easy and interesting day trip. Upon reaching the bottom of the mountain, visitors can travel by cable car or rack railway (cremellera). Whichever way you travel there will be surprise in store at the top.

The abbey’s grand basilica was built around a much revered, 12th century, Romanesque statue of a Black Madonna which attracts numerous pilgrims and visitors.

Enjoy breathtaking views across Catalonia on one of the many hiking tracks further up the mountain. For a great photo opportunity take the walk to St Michael’s Cross from where the monastery can be seen in all its grandeur.

The Montserrat boys choir, l’Escolania de Montserrat, sing at least one religious service on most days (not Saturday). As well there are places to eat, gift and souvenir shops and a daily market where local villagers and farmers sell their wares. To make the most of a visit to Montserrat, plan to spend a night here - you won't be disappointed.

Siobahn Kelly from Galway, Ireland23 Dec 2023

We loved this sacred place so much that we vow to visit again in the near future. The singing during Mass was inspirational and the whole mountain settlement is a place of great beauty. The hotel is clean, comfortable and the food is very good. However, there were other choices of eating places. too. We hiked, we brought souvenirs at the market and we soaked up the view and the atmosphere of a holy mountain. A truly special destination.

Inez Sánchez from São Paulo, Brazil18 Sep 2019

What a wonderful and spiritual place. I return home much fitter (some of those mountain walks are tough), but well rested and contented after a wondrous stay. The apartments are very well-fitted out and the staff attend to every need. Would like to stay on the mountain forever.

Justine Lai from Maple Ridge, Canada17 Jul 2019

Such a peaceful place when the tourists depart in the afternoon. Homely and comfortable apartments - not 5-star - but ideal for family. Had everything we needed and to cap it off we were in the the most stunningly beautiful part of the world. Great memories...

This iconic Benedictine Abbey of Montserrat is surrounded by a vast, natural reserve and unusual rock formations. The views across Catalonia can only be described as 'spectacular. Even though the monastery is situated high in the clouds, there is much to see and do here. So much so that an overnight stay is well worth considering - even for the sunrise! The hotel’s location at the heart of the sanctuary, near the basilica, assures visitors an unforgettable stay, in a peaceful, pleasant atmosphere, with magnificent views of the mountain and the Llobregat Valley.
The hotel has 82 rooms with bath or shower, satellite television, telephone, parquet floor and heating. Its total capacity for 153 guests. Eating places and a shop stocking basic provisions and souvenirs are on-site.
