Located one hour from Barcelona, the “Monument a Ramon Llull” and also known by some as the “Stairway to Heaven”, is a 40-year-old monument to 13th-century philosopher Ramon Llull situated next to the famous Santa Maria de Montserrat abbey. What’s interesting is that the tiers to climb up represent his “eight stages of awareness: stone, flame, plant, animal, man, heaven, angel and God” as pointed out by Adam Bisby from “The Globe and Mail”!
