Nestled in the Montserrat mountains, the Benedictine abbey of Santa Maria de Montserrat is a breathtaking complex that dates back to the 10th century. Its highlight is the wooden statue of the patron saint of Catalonia Virgin Mary of Montserrat, also known as the Black Madonna, surrounded by an altar of gold. Carved in Jerusalem, the Romanesque image is believed to have miraculous powers. The complex has the Publicacions de l'Abadia de Montserrat, the oldest extant press in the world which started publishing in 1499.
