- The Mountain: Montserrat is a multi-peaked mountain, located just 40km outside of the city of Barcelona. ''Montserrat'' literally means ''saw mountain'' (serrated, like the common handsaw), in Catalan. It describes this peculiar aspect with its multitude of rock formations, visible from a great distance. The mountain is composed of strikingly pink conglomerate, a type of sedimentary rock. Montserrat is also Spain's first National Park.
- Benedictian Monastery: Santa Maria de Montserrat is a Benedictine abbey, located on the mountain of Montserrat, at a height of 1236 meters. The monastery was founded in the 10th century and still functions to this day, housing over 150 monks. The Escolania, or Montserrat’s Boys Choir, is one of the oldest in Europe, and performs during religious ceremonies and communal prayers in the basilica.
- Mountain also houses a museum with works of art by many prominent painters and sculptors, including works by El Greco, Dalí, Picasso and others. The ''Publicacions de l'Abadia de Montserrat'' is a publishing house, located near the monastery. It is famous for having one of the oldest presses in the world, not downplaying the amazing fact that the press is still operating! It’s first book was published in 1499.
- Black Madonna: Our Lady of Montserrat, or the Virgin of Montserrat, is a statue of the Madonna and Child venerated at the Santa Maria de Montserrat monastery on the Montserrat Mountain. She is the Patron Saint of Catalonia, an honor she shares with Saint George (Sant Jordi in Catalan). ''La Moreneta'', or ''the little dark one'' is due to the dark color of the statue's face. It is a common belief that if you touch her hand, your wishes will come true.
