The monastery of Santa María de Montserrat is a Benedictine abbey located on the mountain of Montserrat, belonging to the region of Bages, province of Barcelona, at a height of 720 meters above sea level. Administratively it belongs to the municipality of Monistrol de Montserrat, although some of its adjacent lands enter the municipality of Collbató. It is a symbol for Catalonia and has become a pilgrimage point for believers and a must for tourists. The legend places the discovery of the image of the Virgin of Montserrat around the year 880. Then the cult to the Moreneta began. However, the origin of the monastery is uncertain: it is known that, around 1011, a monk from the monastery of Santa María de Ripoll came to the mountain to take charge of the monastery of Saint Cecilia, leaving the monastery under the orders of Abbot Oliba of Ripoll.
