Montserrat up close

Montserrat is renowned for its singular morphology: its rounded peaks, known as “needles”, are the most iconic and spectacular of the mountain’s characteristics.

The Geopark Visitor Centre is located at the scenic overlook of Mirador de Sant Joan, alongside the upper station of the funicular railway of the same name. Here, visitors can find out about Montserrat’s geological characteristics, as well as the mountain’s climate and diverse native flora and fauna.
