“Magnificent Montserrat” – TripAdvisor
The Madonna of Monserrat is an icon of Catalon culture. This tour allows you to see the monastery, the black Msadonna and, most importantly, the impressive mountain site (which inspired Gaudi, among others.) The guide Francesc shares his enthusiasm for the history and natural beauty of the site — he’s knowledgeable and charming. Perhaps someone should give him some hints on English pronounciation (MON-as-terry instead of mon-as-TER-ee for example) but somehow the halting and accented English added to the charm of the tour. I especially enjoyed the sound of the usually silent b in ‘climbers”.
