Places to see in ( Montserrat - Spain )

Places to see in ( Montserrat - Spain )

Montserrat is a multi-peaked rocky range located near the city of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. Montserrat is part of the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range. The main peaks are Sant Jeroni, Montgrós and Miranda de les Agulles.

Montserrat is well known as the site of the Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat, which hosts the Virgin of Montserrat sanctuary and which is identified by some with the location of the Holy Grail in Arthurian myth.

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. Montserrat is Spain's first National Park. In 1493, Christopher Columbus named the Caribbean island of Montserrat Santa Maria de Montserrate, after the Virgin of Montserrat.

The Benedictine Abbey can be reached by road, by the Aeri de Montserrat cable car, or by the Montserrat Rack Railway. The lower stations of both the rack railway and the cable car can be reached by Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya train from Barcelona's Plaça d'Espanya station. From the abbey, the Funicular de Sant Joan funicular railway goes up to the top of the mountain, where there are various abandoned hovels in the cliff faces that were previously the abodes of reclusive monks, while the Funicular de la Santa Cova descends to a shrine.

The highest summit of Montserrat is called Sant Jeroni (Saint Jerome) and stands at 1,236 meters (4,055 feet) above sea-level. It is accessible by hiking trails which connect from the top entrance to the Sant Joan funicular, the monastery, or the base of the mountain. The Cavall Bernat 1,111 meters (3,645 feet) is an important rock feature popular with climbers.

( Montserrat - Spain ) is well know as a tourist destination because of the variety of places you can enjoy while you are visiting the city of Montserrat . Through a series of videos we will try to show you recommended places to visit in Montserrat - Spain

Supernatural Mountain Holy Grail | Montserrat Spain | Full Time Travel Vlog 10

Subscribe: | ��Make sure to enable ALL push notifications!��

Montserrat is one hour from Barcelona but bit of a hidden gem. Although plenty of tourists visit the monastery, the walking routes are very quiet. This place has a fascinating history with Napoleon and Himmler paying it a visit. Himmler specifically came looking for the holy grail which he believed would give him supernatural powers. It is easy to get here from Barcelona and a perfect day trip. We sleep in our car again and find out that many truck stops have showers to use for a small fee, a great budget travel hack.

Where to Stay: Montserrat, W.I

The Caribbean Island of Montserrat is a fun place to visit for anyone who loves to explore the world. If you want to know where to stay, this video tells all about several comfortable options, which are also excellent value.

It is one part of a series about the island of Montserrat, covering different topics from dining-out to hiking.

We invite you to own this video. It will assist our production of more promotional features like this one.

MONTSERRAT ~ Statue Rock ~ Best UAV Drone Caribbean ~ WeBeYachting.com

Montserrat is one incredibly beautiful mountainous Caribbean island, part of the Lesser Antilles chain and a British Overseas Territory. Sadly Its Soufrière Hills volcano first erupted in the 1990s, causing devastation to the southern part of the island which is now an exclusion zone. The north part of the island is largely unaffected, and has unique black sand beaches, coral reefs, breath taking cliffs, shoreline caves and a new city.

Visitors are politely told that Montserrat is not a volcano; it has a volcano and assured that the north part of the Island remains entirely safe, with the Soufrière Hills volcano is under round-the-clock monitoring by a MVO “Montserrat volcano observatory”. As is often the way in the aftermath of disaster, the close-knit community has forged stronger bonds than ever. Crime is a rarity, front doors and vehicles are unlocked, with the PEOPLE making the island magical. For first-time visitors to the Caribbean island of Montserrat, some of the local vocabulary evokes Geology 101. Words like “pyroclastic flow,” “seismic” and “dome collapse” pop up often in conversations with native islanders and longtime residents.

There is much to do in Montserrat other that visiting volcano devastation exclusion zones, there is epic nature hiking trails, black sand beaches, even a nice hike that will take you to the only white sand beach on the island. Drop an email to Sunny Lea, he is a wealth of local knowledge and is an amazing tour guide.

We wish to extend a special thanks to:
Sunny “AKA Sun” Lea of Montserrat Island Tours
&
Clover, David & Noah of Gingerbread Hill

Stay tuned we are working on publishing our next video of parts of the exclusion zone.

This video was shot within regulation of Montserrat recreational use drone flying rules by responsible flying procedures with regards to locations and flight hight limits.

We hope you enjoyed our new video.

We are always glad to hear your comments and cheers from Nelsons DockYard Antigua.

Montserrat: A Hidden Gem

My cousin and I visited our grandparents on an island called Montserrat. It's located in the West Indie islands of the Caribbean.

Here are some highlights from the trip. Let me know what you think!

Bramble Airport Buried Forever ~ MONTSERRAT ~ Exclusion Zone V ~ Drone Caribbean ~ WeBeYachting.com

Take a look at the lost W.H. Bramble airport destroyed by multiple volcano eruptions. We where not allowed to enter this part of the exclusion zone V. The footage seen here was shot from the safety zone of Jack Boy Hill.

W.H. Bramble Airport, also known as Blackburne Airport, was a small international airport on the east coast of the island of Montserrat, a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. It was named after Montserrat Chief Minister William Henry Bramble.

The airport was destroyed in 1997 by an eruption of the nearby Soufriere Hills volcano, which obliterated much of the southern part of the island. For several years after the disaster, Montserrat was only accessible by helicopters or boats, until July 2005, when the new Gerald's Airport (now John A. Osborne Airport) was completed at the north end of the island. Bramble Airport had used the IATA airport code MNI, but this has now been transferred to the new airport.

Today only a few visible structures can be seen, The airport was is permanently damaged and is not repairable.

History
Montserrat is a small island, only 10 miles long by 7 miles wide, located in the Leeward Islands chain of the Lesser Antilles. It is only about 40 square miles in size, but due to recent volcanic activity it is actually increased in size.
Despite being diminutive, the location and topography of Montserrat proved to be attractive to early explorers. Christopher Columbus was first reported to have spotted the island in 1493 and he named it Santa Maria de Montserrat for a monastery in Catalonia, Spain.

Disaster Strikes
Montserrat has fallen victim to natural disasters multiple times in its history. In 1989 Hurricane Hugo would kill 21 people and destroy 90% of the island, causing an estimated $300M in damage. Despite the near total destruction of the island, they would receive aid and rebuild. In July of 1995, the previously-dormant Soufrière Hills volcano would erupt. It would send pyroclastic lava flows in all directions – including toward the town of Plymouth. By August of 1995 residents were evacuated when fragmented volcanic ash began to fall on the town; several months later the residents were allowed to return. On June 25th, 1997, another eruption would see the town almost completely overcome by pyroclastic surges. Nineteen people were killed, and once again Plymouth was evacuated. Soufrière Hills would continue to erupt into August, and eventually bury 80% of Plymouth.

Volcanic Exclusion Zone & The Future
The government has prohibited anyone from entering the area affected by the pyroclastic flows. Even homes that were not overcome by the flows were forced to be abandoned (see below). If the roads to get to these homes weren’t destroyed, the plumbing and electrical infrastructure was. The inability to rebuild in the area has left these otherwise sound structures to sit empty and rot. Recovery of Plymouth would be next-to impossible. The hard pyroclastic flow buries the town in a concrete-like rock. Sewage pipes are severed. There is very little grass or soil and the town has a moon-like surface covered in rock and large boulders. Rebuilding would require large-scale demolition not available to Montserrat; heavy equipment and explosives would be needed just to break up the rock, and the now-infertile scorched earth beneath offers little incentive to try. Even if the island had the capability to rebuild, the cost to do so would be astronomical, further reducing the chance that Plymouth Montserrat will ever return.
