Wild goats of Montserrat

We are just outside city of Barcelona, in the multi-peaked rocky mountain range called Montserrat (literally means “saw mountain”), with highest summit at 1236 m. 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. The forests around are part of Montserrat Natural Park, home to some mammals like squirrels, cats, boars and wild goats, which we had the privilege to spot on nearby rocks!
