During my visit in Spain, I had the chance to visit Montserrat. The view from the top of the hill is stunning. The old town is also full of tradition. I guarantee you will spend quality time wether you are here alone or with your loved ones. Great place to be. #wintergetaway
Why is the Montserrat Monastery the soul of the Catalans?
First of all, from the difference between the monastery and the church. During the turmoil of the Dark Ages, a small number of Christians who were firmly dedicated to religion left the society to live a hermit life on the edge of a desolate and daunting civilization. The behavior of the hermit evokes more stale priests to swear to pay attention to poverty and dedication, and to re-listen to the teachings. As the name suggests, the monastery is a place to abandon the bustling and cleansing of the world, and it is also a base for cultivating clergy. The church is a carrier of religion, both large and small, and it is responsible for the religious rituals and religious practices of the local people. In the eyes of the people, the monastery is more sacred and pure, and many people are more willing to visit the monastery to gain peace of mind. With a respectful heart, we visited this thousand-year-old monastery. The interior decoration, chandeliers, sculptures, and color windows all retain the Christian style and beauty. Exquisite but extremely atmospheric.
