We are in Barcelona, but you can breathe easily at the albergue Mare de Déu de Montserrat. Starting with the surrounding area, the Vallcarca neighborhood is a very peaceful area filled with gardens, that is also well connected to the centre of the city. Now let’s talk about the building that hosts the hostel, the Casa Josepa Marsans i Peix.The building has a unique style that combines Modernisme with the Moorish revival style, which gives it great architectural and historical value. The building served a variety of purposes following the Spanish Civil War. In 1983, it was finally adapted into the first hostel in Barcelona. In addition, it’s on the list of European Cultural Heritage. The establishment sleeps 197 people and has a lounge, a games room, an auditorium with a 150 people capacity and meeting rooms.
