Carry your tour forward to the Open-Air Museum, a sanctuary dripping with artistic and historic significance. Pay a visit to sites like the Holy Grotto, a cave-like structure which served as the hiding spot for the Virgin of Montserrat during Moorish invasions.

Historical Museums of Montserrat

A historically rich and artistically significant site, the Open-Air Museum in Montserrat is a sanctuary comprising multiple religious sites. Located here is the Holy Grotto, also called Santa Cova, where, according to legends, the sculpture of the Virgin of Montserrat was hidden to protect it from Moorish invaders. Catch a glimpse of the exhibition of Audiovisual Space Montserrat Portes Endins, which tells the story of the monastery, sanctuary, and the serrated mountains. To explore the artistic culture of the region, head over to the Museum of Montserrat, which was crowned a museum of national interest in 2006. Works by artists such as Monet, Dali, and Picasso grace the walls of the museum, with important archaeological collections from Mesopotamia, Persia, and Egypt displayed proudly in the museum.
