Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey

A brief tour of the stunning interior of the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey. This abbey venerates the black virgin, or la Moreneta – “The little dark-skinned one”. Visitors can climb up to the adjourning room to see the statue, and also get a sweeping view of the abbey itself.

  1. Truly awe-inspiring. Although I’m not religious, I appreciate a space that feels like the architects were truly inspired. The shot looking into the abbey is just stunning.
