Montserrat is a multi-peaked mountain range near Barcelona, whose main peaks are Sant Jeroni (1,236 m), Montgrós (1,120 m). "Montserrat" literally means "saw (serrated, like the common handsaw) mountain" in Catalan. It describes its peculiar aspect with multitude of rock formations which are visible from a great distance. The mountain is composed of strikingly pink conglomerate, a form of sedimentary rock.
To some it is a monastery, to some it is a natural park, to some it is a mountain and for others it is all of these things. Whatever your reason for coming to Montserrat, you will be amazed by its unique beauty and spirituality.
In 1987 Montserrat Mountain was declared to be a natural park by the Generalitat de Catalunya. It is a place that is of interest for its vegetation, wildlife and climate. During your trip to Montserrat it is definitely worth trying to schedule in time for a walk around the natural park.
