A lot of visitors to mountain are not aware of the treasures that lay within this wonderful sight.
The Benedictine Monk retreat at Montserrat offers you some of the most spectacular mountain views of Catalunya.
Now it is magnificent UNESCO heritage and included in 10 most visited spiritual places in the world.
The main reason to make a journey for tourist from all over the world to this spectacular mountain is to see and pray to the black faced Madonna n the basilica Montserrat monastery. To learn more visit this link:
The black faced Madonna in the basilica Montserrat monastery
And yes, tour guids will insure you that if you ask Madonna with your open heart and believe, she will make your wish come true!
We did that and hope all will work out great about our deep wishes and happiness... But the main focus at this page i wish to turn to ART MUSEUM at Montserrat because a lot of visitors to mountain are not aware of the treasures that lay within this wonderful sight.
The Museum of Montserrat houses an important collection of ancient paintings. Most of the paintings in this section come from the acquisitions of Abbot Antoni M. Marcet in Rome and Naples between 1913 and 1920. Abbot Aureli M. Escarré extended the collection with new acquisitions to which other donations have been added.
I would like to present you my highlights of this museum as take a stroll around it and you will find the likes of Picasso, Dali and Caravaggio nestled in amongst less well-known artists. There are over 1300 pieces housed in the museum covering a broad historical period: the earliest exhibit is an Egyptian sarcophagus from 13th century BC and the most recent exhibit is a sculpture from 2001 by Josep M Subirachs.
