Favourite Places, 2: Monserrat, Spain

Or more accurately, Benedictine Monastery of Santa Maria de Monserrat atop the mountains in Catalonia, Spain that existed since 880 AD.

About an hour and a half via public transport from Barcelona, the trip there is fun in itself with the cog railway ride up to the monastery.  A lot of travellers go there to see the Black Madonna on the high altar in the Basilica. At noon everyday, choir boys sing the Gregorian Chants in her honour.
