Today we rode a cable car up the nearby Montserrat to visit the monastery set high up on it’s cliffs—not many things in this world are more majestic than this! The name Montserrat actually means “serrated mountain” because the tale says that angels came down from heaven and carved it with their swords.
Local families traditionally gather at the monastery and look to the mountain range to find new shapes in the rock. We found a camel and an elephant. The monastery also houses a music school for boys. We were lucky enough to catch the very first performance of the boys choir after their month-long July vacation.
Tonight, we took in a traditional flamenco show over dinner. The food was delicious, but nothing could outshine the dancing!
