A Benedictine abbey in the Catalonia mountain range Montserrat, Santa Maria de Montserrat is one of the region’s most important religious destinations. It venerates the Black Virgin, and also hosts the Escolania, one of the oldest boys’ choir in Europe. This is the facade of the abbey’s basilica, added on in the early 1900’s.
