Montserrat is the spiritual heart of Catalonia and here you can find the high peaks of the Serra de Montserrat. These weird sawtoothed peaks have given rise to countless legends: Here, Parsifal found the Holy Grail, St Peter left a statue of the Virgin Mary and Wagner sought inspiration for his opera.

Besides this all you can also bring a visit to Museu de Montserrat or take a walk around the mountain, to its various caves and  ruined hermitages. To have a wonderful view of the Pyrenees, make the easy walk called Los Degotalls. A funicular (cable car) ascends from the Placa Santa Creu to the Santa Cova and another will lift you up to the Hermitage of Sant Joan. From her you can make a spectacular walk in just over an hour up to the Hermitage of Sant Jeroni.
