Santa Cecília de Montserrat lies in one of the most beautiful spots in these mountains, on the southern slopes overlooking the Marganell River Valley. The church is one of the most outstanding examples of Romanesque architecture in the region: the Lombard arches, the barrel vault, the austere, simple walls, all evoke the profound, humble origins of Christian and Benedictine worship on this mountain. The nobility of the church has been conserved over the centuries. This is a quality that the well-known Irish painter Sean Scully ably reflects in his artistic intervention in the interior, where he has created an exceptional ensemble of painting and stained glass. His work makes Santa Cecília one of the most outstanding sites in the world for its magnificent fusion of Christianity and avant-garde art. This is a unique in which to appreciate and feel history, art and spirituality in close contact with the natural beauty of Montserrat itself.
