Supernatural Mountain | Montserrat Spain | Full Time Travel Vlog 10

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

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.

The Monastery in the Mountains of Catalonia - A Visit to Montserrat Monastery in Spain

#TravelEurope #MontserratMonastery #VisitSpain
Not very far from civilization, yet utterly wild. Very close to the city, yet in the heart of the mountain. In close proximity to the most prominent urban areas, it is yet placed into a nature park.
Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey, also known as the Monserrat Monastery, is one of the most thrilling pearls in the crown of Catalonia, and we are here to tell you a bit more about it.

Location and getting there

The Montserrat Monastery is located in the Catalonian Monistrol de Montserrat municipality, Spain. It is only about 70 km from the city centre of Barcelona or 50 km from the borders of the city. It is an excellent day trip for every visitor to the famous Spanish city.

Montserrat reaches as high as 1,236 meters above the floor of the ravine, and is, therefore, the highest point of the Catalan valley.

The monastery is a prominent tourist destination and can be reached by car or a motorcycle, by train, or by a cable car. The Plaça Espanya train to the abbey departs every hour, starting from around 8:30 AM. The trip takes about an hour and a half.

A brief history of Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey

The Montserrat Monastery is a fully-functional monastery that was initially erected back in the 11th century, then shattered in the Peninsular War, and reconstructed again between the 19th and 20th centuries.

It is one of the most important religious landmarks of Catalonia and played a vital role in not merely the spiritual realm of the region, but also for the expansion of its arts and its traditions in publishing.

What is there to observe in and around the Montserrat Monastery

Once you set foot on the mountain of Monserrat, you can't afford to miss any of the following:

● The 12th-century image of the Virgin of Montserrat - a statue of the Madonna and Child, which represents the most loved patron saint of Catalonia.
● The Museum of the basilica that hosts works of art by many prominent painters such as Salvarod Dalí, El Greco, Claude Monet, and Luca Giordano.

● The peak of the Montserrat mountain - an epic viewpoint that stands 300 meters above the monastery.

● The Audiovisual Room, the cosy cafeteria and chill-out area of the monastery.

Visitors can design their own route throughout the area, or book one of the various guided tours that will spare most of the organizational concerns of their endeavour.

Montserrat, Catalonia - Spain 4K Travel Channel

Montserrat is about 40 km north-west of Barcelona. Montserrat is at the same time name of the monastery and of sand stone mountains. It is one of the landmarks of Catalonia. The highest peak, Sant Jeroni is 1,236 m high. From Barcelona we go by train in about 30 minutes to the lower cableway station, built 1930 by the Leipzig company Adolf Bleichert & Co. A cable car takes us up to the monastery of Montserrat, which is located at an altitude of 720 m.
Apart from the cable car, there is a winding road and since 2003 a rack railway to the monastery. From there you can take a funicular railway to the summit of the mountain. Another funicular railway brings you down to the holy cave where the dark Madonna, since 1880 the patron saint of Catalonia, was allegedly found.
Of course, the mountain can also be reached by foot over steep trails.
The monastery from the 12th century is visited by many pilgrims, who worship the Black Madonna, which can be seen in the apse of the monastery church. Approximately 80 monks live here today.
In addition, the monastery is known for its boys' choir Escolania de Montserrat, which is proved documentary since 1307. Every day around 13.00 they sing the Marian hymn Virolai the in the church.
Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey is famous for its spectacular location, but also as a symbol of Catalan nationalism. During the Franco dictatorship it enjoyed religious privileges. It was not subordinated to the bishops appointed by Franco, and therefore the holy masses in the monastery were celebrated in Catalan, which was forbidden in the rest of the country. During our visit we got an impression.
On the square in front of the church the people are dancing the Sardana.
In 1881, Pope Leo XII declared the church a Basilica minor.
The Montserrat monastery is a Benedictine abbey. Here, St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus, took his vow.
Adjoined to the monastery is a library of 200,000 volumes and an archaeological museum.

Montserrat liegt ca. 40 km nordwestlich von Barcelona. Es ist zugleich der Name des Klosters und des Sandsteingebirges und eines der Wahrzeichen Kataloniens. Der höchste Gipfel, der Sant Jeroni ist 1236 m hoch. Von Barcelona fahren wir mit dem Zug in ca 30 Minuten zur Talstation der 1930 von der Leipziger Firma Adolf Bleichert & Co errichteten Seilbahn. Die Seilbahn bringt uns dann hinauf zum Kloster, das auf 720 m Höhe liegt.
Außer der Seilbahn gibt es eine kurvenreiche Straße und seit 2003 eine Zahnradbahn mit der das Kloster erreichbar ist. Von dort führt eine Standseilbahn zum Gipfel des Gebirges und eine andere hinab zur Heiligen Höhle, in der angeblich die dunkle Madonna, seit 1880 die Schutzpatronin Kataloniens, gefunden wurde.
Natürlich lässt sich der Berg über steile Pfade auch zu Fuß erklimmen.
Das Kloster aus dem 12. Jahrhundert wird von vielen Wallfahrern besucht, die die schwarze Madonna verehren, die in der Apsis der Klosterkirche zu sehen ist. Heute leben hier ungefähr 80 Mönche.
Außerdem ist das Kloster bekannt für seinen Knabenchor Escolania de Montserrat, der seit 1307 urkundlich nachgewiesen ist und täglich um 13.00 in der Kirche das Marienlied Virolai singt.
Das Kloster ist berühmt wegen seiner spektakulären Lage, aber auch als Symbol für den katalanischen Nationalismus. Während der Franco Diktatur genoss es kirchliche Sonderrechte. Es unterstand nicht den von Franco ernannten Bischöfen und deshalb wurden im Kloster die Messen in katalanischer Sprache, die im übrigen Land verboten war, gehalten. Während unseres Besuches bekamen wir direkt einen Eindruck. Auf dem Platz vor der Kirche wurde Sardana getanzt.
Papst Leo XII. erhob 1881 die Kirche in den Stand einer Basilica minor.
Das Kloster ist eine Benediktinerabtei. Hier legte der heilige Ignatius von Loyola, der Gründer der Societas Jesu, des Jesuitenordens, sein Gelübde ab.
An das Kloster angeschlossen ist eine Bibliothek mit 200.000 Bänden und ein archäologisches Museum.
