Hoja  Monasterio de Montserrat - Sant Jeroni...

The mountain of Montserrat surprise to anyone who visits for the first time and is an inexhaustible source natural routes to discover. A steep mountain (the name says it all: serrated mountain) with unique shapes that suddenly appears out of nowhere, rising 1236 meters above the river Llobregat. And that Montserrat is "a dream come mountain" in the words of poet Josep Carner. Symbol of worship, a place of pilgrimage for believers and non-believers.

Tucked away in the mountains is the Monastery of Montserrat, the twelfth century, formed two distinct parts. On one hand, the basilica and monastery dependencies, where they currently reside a hundred Benedictine monks; on the other, service buildings, including apartments for the accommodation of pilgrims, restaurants, shops. During the Napoleonic Wars, the monAsterio was burned and looted on several occasions, and was rebuilt years later.

Legend has it that the first image of the Virgin found some shepherds in the ninth century inside a cave, and that while the bishop asked to be moved to Manresa size was impossible because it was too heavy. The bishop interpreted the message as the desire of the Virgin to stay in that place and built a chapel, origin of the current monastery. The Romanesque sculpture that can be seen today dates from the twelfth century and is made of poplar. This is a figure of the Virgin with the infant Jesus on her lap and holding a sphere in his right hand symbolizing the universe.
