Leaving Barcelona's vibrant port, drive an hour and a half through glorious Catalonian countryside to the awe-inspiring town of Montserrat. Perched 2,300 feet above sea level, the town is home to one of the great Benedictine monastic complexes of the Middle Ages. You will have an hour and a half to explore this amazing set of buildings, including the stunning Montserrat Basilica. A superb example of Roman architecture, the basilica is decorated with statues of Christ and the 12 Apostles. The interior is renowned for its gilded wooden sculpture of Catalonia's patron saint La Moreneta, also known as the 'Black Madonna'. Pay homage to the silver altar dedicated to the Virgin or visit their museum, which boasts works of art by El Greco, Dali and Picasso. Then stroll the Plaza, browsing the many shops or simply enjoy a refreshment in one of the many colorful cafes.
