For many visitors to Montserrat it is more than a visit to a Monastery - it is a visit to one of Catalunya´s most magnificent natural parks. Let us invite you to this natural treasure!
Montserrat Mountain, one of Spain's greatest attractions, was declared a natural park in 1987 by the Generalitat de Catalunya. Before your trip to Montserrat it is worth gaining a bit of background information on the Montserrat Natural Park and what features of interest lie in store.
Montserrat Mountain is located to the right of the Llobregat River, in-between the Plain of Bages (called Pla de Bages) and the coast. It sits amongst a mountain range known as the pre-coastal mountain range and its peak can be seen jutting out from the range.
Montserrat's highest peak is called St. Jerome and it sits 1236 metres above sea level. For more details on St. Jerome etc. visit: http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.com/en/montserrattg/en/attractions/montserrat-natural-park.html
