A hillside cave in Montserrat that is home to one of the most respected shrines in Spain, The Santa Cova of Montserrat is a popular tourist spot. The Black Virgin of Montserrat was hidden in the Santa Cova cave from the Moors before it was rediscovered in the cave in 880. A chapel was built at the cave sometime between 1696 and 1705 and was restored a couple of times afterwards. This cave can only be accessed by hiking or taking a funicular part way and walking the rest.

Beautiful place! If you there, than visit everything. The museum, the chatedral, the hiking routes are great.
Great walk!! All paved but quite a few steps - not for wheelchairs. The vignettes along the way to the chapel are really beautiful, and it's almost like a Via Cruces kind of thing. Take your time to enjoy the amazing views!! There was no restroom at the chapel (at least there wasn't when we arrived) so be sure to go at one of the cafes before you start your hike. (There is a turnoff for Collbató where it looks like desperate "pee-ers" have gone before, as it's hidden from view just down the path, but better to go before!)
The cosiest but most beautiful church I ever visited. This should be religion about.
smart place most powerful Energetikov very beautiful
Where the story told that was found the virgen. Great walk from Montserrat Church to there!
