SUSTAINABILITY

Euro Solidarity Foundation Escolanía de Montserrat

One euro of each invoice of our guests in-house is donated to l’Escolania de Montserrat school, one of the oldest children’s choirs in Europe, so that no child has to give up his general and musical educational training, due to lack of resources. Moreover, every year we host the Grand Charity Christmas Concert by l’Escolania de Montserrat with all the benefits donated to Casa Guadalupe and Mission Education.
