Once there, you can see the basilica of the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia. You can also listen to choral concerts, take part in prayers and observe the Gothic church.
Another peculiar site is Santa Cova, where the image of the Virgin of Montserrat was found and from where, according to legend, an attempt was made to transport the Virgin to Manresa and she proved that she wanted to stay there, as the further away she was taken, the heavier she got, so a chapel was built for her.
