  • A comfortable Bus will take you to the mountain of Montserrat which rises majestically to 4,051 feet (1,236 meter). The rocks of Montserrat were formed by natural cement of sand during the centuries. The wind and rain shaped the mountain with strange and varied forms. The popular imagination has seen human or animal shape in some of these peaks, giving those names and inventing legends to explain their fantastic origins.

Today, Montserrat has been modernized to continue attending to the needs to pilgrims, one thousand years after it was originally founded.
