Montserrat is a mountainover 4000 feet high, visible for miles, with weird shapes and rounded peaks that jut into the sky. It is also home to a library of nearly 300,000 volumes; the oldest boys' choir in Europe; a basilica full of paintings, gold lamps and decorated chapels, a museum with paintings by El Greco, Picasso and Dali among many others and treasures from ancient Egypt.
Upon arrival our guide will take us to the main places such as the museum with a great collection of paintings, the different bars, restaurants and shops that are located there and also the monastery and basilica, two of the main attractions.
