Metro-Train-Cable Car; this happened! It took us a while to figure it out, but we did it! We took the Metro to the Train station, the Train to Montserrat, and a cable car to Montserrat Monastery. The views are breath-taking. It was easily the highest altitude I have ever been.
I won’t get all philosophical on my views of gregarious churches and I certainly respect other’s opinions. When I see a big, massive church like this, way up high in the mountains, I can only think of the sacrifice and lives lost trying to achieve some sort of closeness to God. I understand that the human body needs to be housed and that people are extremely passionate about their religion but, a Silver altar?
We had gotten the audio tour and I ended up plugging the headphones into my phone to listen to music while patiently following my friend around this place. The views were mind-boggling and they do make you feel a closeness to God and what He created.
My God created the views – man created the buildings and stuff around it. Enjoy the pictures!
