Montserrat is a spectacularly beautiful Benedictine monk mountain retreat about one hour from Barcelona. Not only is Montserrat Monastery of significant religious importance but the natural beauty surrounding the monastery is simply breathtaking. Montserrat first came to life in 1025, when a new monastery was founded at the hermitage of Santa Maria de Montserrat. The monastery quickly became popular as stories of miracles performed by the Virgin spread from pilgrim to pilgrim. In 1409, the monastery became an independent abbey, and then a cultural center of the first order. As a result, Montserrat as a region has also grown in popularity over time.
