Monserrat Mountain: Barcelona Road Landscape

Monserrat Mountain: Barcelona Road Landscape
© All Rights Reserved

I took this picture of the Mountain of Montserrat from a gas station on my way out of Barcelona last weekend. As I had already mentioned Montserrat in my previous post about Torre Agbar, I decided to show this landscape image. Its jagged silhouette is an omnipresent travel company along the road as it extends through Bages, Anoia and Baix LLobregat comarques, in Barcelona province. You should know that Mare de Deu de Monserrat is the patroness of Catalonia, but that´s another story. Find out more about Montserrat Mountain.

See Monserrat Mountain Picture on a Google Earth Map.

  2. At the time I took this one I was in a hurry and I only spend about 5 minutes while my family was in the gas station shop for a drink. Besides, I was on my way to Pedraforca, another beautiful mountain with incredible views and I took good pictures (but that is not in Barcelona province so I am not sure if I should post them).

    >yes, you are right. At the monastery of the same name, but I intend to deal with that topic some other time, thus the scarcity of references.
