Volem per sobre de Montserrat

Aquest principi de setembre de 2010 hem tingut l’encàrrec de sobrevolar  la muntanya de Montserrat amb helicòpter per tal de realizar una sèrie de fotografies i també vídeo en HD.

Les fotografies serviran per tenir catalogades i identificades totes les roques, pel que fa el vídeo, aquest serà estabilitzat via software posteriorment.

Montserrat, EL silenci de la Muntanya

Diferents vistes de Montserrat al llarg de l’any 2009. Alguns fragments del vídeo han estat enregistrats amb la tècnica del ‘time-lapse’ (sequències de fotos fetes a intervals de dos o tres segons).

English:

This is Montserrat, the so-called ‘sacred mountain’ in center of Catalonia.

Montserrat is a multi-peaked mountain located near the city of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. It is part of the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range. The main peaks are Sant Jeroni (1,236 m), Montgrós (1 ,120 m) and Miranda de les Agulles (903 m) The mountain is the namesake for the Caribbean island of Montserrat.
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 “jagged (serrated) mountain” in Catalan. It describes the peculiar aspect of the rock formation, which is visible from a great distance. The mountain is composed of strikingly pink conglomerate, a form of sedimentary rock.

The mountain holds a Benedictine monastery of Montserrat, which was founded in the 11th century, stand in a 60km Natural Park to the west of Barcelona. The patron saint of Catalonia, Santa Maria de Montserrat, is venerated in the Sanctuary. The Benedictine community, currently made up of about eighty monks, has served the sanctuary for almost a thousand years. It is largely dedicated to prayer, research, teaching and welcoming pilgrims, making the site a place for meeting, prayer and culture.
As well as the monks, at Montserrat there is also the Escolania, the oldest boys’ choir in Europe, which sings the Salve and Virolai every day, as well as a motet after vespers.
