ENVIRONMENT AND ROUTES
Visits to exhibitions in the lower Santa Cova funicular station
A very interesting exhibition on the history of the funicular railways, with a journey through the origin of this means of transport in various countries. The exhibition is situated in the lower Santa Cova station and shows all the details on how this historical means of transport works.
History of Santa Cova
This exhibition, which is also situated in the lower Santa Cova station, explains the origins, the history, the mysteries and legends of this emblematic and symbolic place on Montserrat mountain. The legend says that in this place an image of the Virgin Mary appeared and a small chapel was built right there because no one was able to move the image.
Santa Cova Path and the Rosari Monumental
A winding route that leads to splendid panoramic views, with monuments at the sides that represent the mysteries of the Rosary. They belong to the most important group of outdoor Modernist sculptures in Catalonia. Santa Cova finishes at the cave chapel against the rock, where according to the legend some shepherds found the image of Mare de Déu de Montserrat. It is an easy route but the last stretch is quite steep coming back, but it can be avoided if you take the funicular.
