Santa Maria de Montserrat is a world-famous Benedictine monastery in Spain . It can be found in Catalonia, in the mountain massif Montserrat, near the village Monistrol de Montserrat, about 35 km from Barcelona . Santa Maria de Montserrat has served as a Benedictine monastery for nearly 1000 years. It was founded in 1025 by the Bishop of Vic and the abbot of Ripoll. Today, you can visit the museum with works of art and paintings by famous artists such as Picasso or Dali. We can find here a library with 300,000 books. Perhaps the most tourists travel to Santa Maria de Montserrat to see the black statue of the Virgin of Montserrat, who was the patroness of Catalonia. The monastery also got famous thanks to the local boys choir Escolania. Daily worship services are held here, too. The monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat is accessible either by cable car, or on the road with lots of curves leading through a limestone massif. From the top of the monastery, visitors can enjoy the fascinating view of the valley. Santa Maria de Montserrat is opened daily, from 8:00 to 10:30. Admission for adults is 40 €.
