Barcelona can be called as the heaven for tourists. Impeccably beautiful, it has all that a tourist wants; a quiet place to spend the holiday, beautiful environment, luxurious living at the most economical rates, historical places to visit, great parks, etc. In short, the city of Barcelona is rich in places which are of interest to the tourists. One of the most interesting places that are within the close vicinity of Barcelona is Montserrat. The town is very well connected by road and train from Barcelona.

Those who visit Montserrat vow to visit the place again and again because of its stunningly beautiful environment and some of the places of interest which are worth visiting. The question normally asked is what is so interesting about Montserrat? Let us just go round the city to understand what it is.

Montserrat Monastery: This monastery is one of the most visited places by all the tourists and it is one of the most sacred places of the town. This beautiful piece of architectural work with the great mountains in the backdrop will certainly mesmerize the tourist with its natural beauty. Of course, one can venture to walk through the mountain to have a spectacular view of the Catalonia province. One can even drive up to the mountain.

Brief history of the monastery: It is something fascinating that was way back in the year 880. The relics say that a group of shepherd children saw a bright light coming from the sky. The curious children informed about this event to their parents. Initially, the parents shrugged off the narration of the children. But noting that the children were honest in their narration, parents accompanied the children and they also saw the bright light coming down from the sky. Then, the parents brought the local vicar to the place.

The bright light vision was located to a cave in the mountain Montserrat. They excavated the cave and to their surprise they found a stunningly beautiful image of Virgin Mary. The cave was named as Holy Grotto. A monastery was built for the Holy Mary. The cave is one of the most holy places. Those who visit the monastery also visit the holy cave.

If you visit the monastery, make it a point to enjoy the performance by Georgian Choir. It is something you will love. It is held every day at 1.00 p.m. This Choir group is so famous across the globe that they have made more than 100 albums.
