Morning Tour

La Botiga

La Botiga is the largest shop in the Montserrat Monastery. It is located directly opposite the exit for the rack railway station and is set across three rooms. The objects on offer across the three rooms all have an element of art and crafts to them.

In the first room (the one that is furthest from La Cafeteria) you will find artisan food made on site in the bakery and the workshops. This includes marmalades, alcohols made using the herbs on Montserrat mountain, olive oils, cured meats, pastries, cheeses, honeys and chocolates.

In the second room you will mostly find children's toys. Some of these include the likes of colouring pens and colouring books and could arguably be called arts and crafts.

In the third room (the one that is closest to La Cafeteria) you will find a range of souvenirs and gifts. These include handmade jewellery, ornaments and religious relics. There are many different interpretations of the Black Madonna available to buy.
