Montserrat, the abbey

by | Jun 25, 2008 | Travel

Montserrat is truly nestled in amongst huge pink cliffs. The mountains tower over the abbey and we thought they looked a little like figures watching over the cloisters.

From the outside the abbey is very attractive, but we were blown away by the interior and the detailed sculptures that lined the open courtyard.

The amount of detailing and decoration was incredible. See for yourself…

We did not wait in line to touch the Virgin of Montserrat, or la Moreneta, but we did sit quietly to take in the ambiance and I flipped through a hymn book while Eric snapped several series of HDR raw photos.
