Where is Montserrat?

Monterrat is one of the place you must visit if you are in Barcelona. It’s one of the most iconic sights in Catalunya.

Monterrat literally means ‘serrated mountain” in Catalan. It describes the serrated top shape of the mountain. It was registered a a national park in 1987.

The highest summit of Montserrat is called Sant Jeroni (Saint Jerome) and it stands at 1,236 meters (4,055 feet) above sea-level. It is accessible by hiking trails which connect from the top entrance to the Sant Joan funicular, the monastery, or the base of the mountain.
