Saturday Snapshot: Montserrat, Spain

At the end of our August trip to Europe for the Disney Cruise, we went to Montserrat, outside of Barcelona. What a beautiful place! It is about an hour outside of the city, reachable by train, up in the mountains. Traditionally, Montserrat (meaning “serrated mountains”) was a destination for religious pilgrims. It was so amazingly beautiful. While there, we went into the cathedral and saw the famous “black virgin”. Beautiful and interesting little side trip!

  1. We loved visiting Montserrat too ! I remember parking the car and riding almost to the top in a cable car of some sort … then, it was a bit of a climb up the path to the monastery and church. It was so lovely … and isolated!

Let me know what you think!
