Full description
The Montserrat massif has traditionally been considered Catalonia's most famous mountain range. Its silhouette evokes the toothed blade of saw and this explains its name, which means "jagged mountain." At the top of the mountain is a monastery, inside which the image of the Mare de Déu de Montserrat (Virgin of Montserrat) is venerated. Widely and affectionately known as La Moreneta (the little dark-skinned one), she has been the patron saint of Catalonia since 1881.

In the Gaudí's Colònia Güell there is the Crypt, the "laboratory," where Gaudí experimented with almost all his architectural innovations. Is part of the Colonia Güell, a modernist industrial village renowned for its integrated urban design, which was groundbreaking at the time it was built.
