A lovely and detailed view over Montserrat with Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat. Montserrat is a multi-peaked rocky range located near the city of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. It is part of the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range. It is well known as the site of the Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat, which hosts the Virgin of Montserrat sanctuary and which is identified by some with the location of the Holy Grail in Arthurian myth. "Montserrat" literally means "saw (serrated, like a handsaw) mountain" in Catalan. It describes its peculiar aspect with a multitude of rock formations which are visible from a great distance; the mountain is composed of strikingly pink sedimentary rock. The title cartouche at lower right includes accompanying text. Human figures carry out everyday activities in the foreground and elsewhere.
