MONTSERRAT, (amplie / enlarge)

A origem geológica desta montanha é sedimentar. As rochas de Montserrat são muito duras e muito resistentes à erosão. Elas consistem de um conglomerado de seixos reforçadas com cimento calcário. No entanto, ao longo do tempo, o vento e a chuva moldaram agulhas em forma de monólitos de aspectos muito diferentes. A imaginação popular associou esses monólicos a figuras humanas e animais, foi dando nomes e inventou lendas que explicam a sua origem no fantástico.
