Les Coves de Montserrat (The Caves of Montserrat)
The mountain of Montserrat hides more than 100 caves inside it, but what we call Les Coves de Montserrat (also known as Salnitre) is located in Collbató, and it is the only one that allows an underground walk of 500 meters long of tourist preparation.
The same Cave has responded to the names of Coves de Montserrat, Coves del Salnitre and Coves de Collbató throughout history, and at the moment the three names coexist, taking the Coves de Montserrat as a commercial name.
The Cave visit
Just crossing the entrance threshold to start a route of some 400 meters following the most spacious conduits and more beautifully ornamented by the successive generations of speleothems (stalactites, stalagmites and columns). A walk enriched by expert guides who, in addition to explaining the characteristics and the result of the geological process that shaped the cavity, will show us the habitat of the first settlers of Montserrat and will enter into a world of stories and legends
The visit includes the viewing of the new videomapping.
