Upon our arrival in Barcelona, we went on a bit of a day tour around the city and then some. Of course, seeing as we were a pilgrimage group, we had to visit the Mountain of Montserrat. We visited the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey which is located somewhere at the top of the mountain.
It was a very beautiful place with a magnificent overlooking view and with lots of local markets that sell homemade local delicacies!
To get to the church, we had to climb a few stairs, its a bit of a long walk but only because of the angle of the road since the abbey is on top of a mountain but when we got to the top we were welcomed by another breath taking view of the mountain and everything below it.
The church was also magnificent but it was too crowded for me to get decent photos so I only took a few good enough (I hope they are) shots.
