|Beautiful mountain! Impressive!!|
The meaning of Verge de Montserrat for catalan people goes beyond the religious feeling. Visiting the virgin in pilgrimage is the usual thing to do to rengrace for anything that happened.
This is also the reason why visiting the Monastry and the Basilica is better on working days rather than in the week end. Satudays and sundays local people is also visiting, on top of the usual foreign visitors. Then, much better avoiding the week end.

Sports in Montserrat are a great experience. No need to say that rock climbing is king in these steep walls. Lots of rock climbers around! Aslo hiking is a great experience in Montserrat. Our recommendation is to get the highest point of the mountain (Miranda de Sant Jeroni, at 1200 mts), from the monastry (at 700 mts). You can do that in just a couple hours (way and back) and the views from the top are stunning! Click here for the detail of the route.

The end of our cycling tours is, obviously, the monastry. The steep final climb is, in words of one of our customers, a mistic experience, fighting the road and the slopes!
