  • Barcelona - Montserrat expand_more
    • Meet your tour guide and go on a short 45-min drive on a comfortable minivan to Montserrat. 

    • Embark on your excursion with a visit to the Benedictine Abbey as you learn its amazing history. Montserrat literally means sawed mountain in Catalan because of its particular multi-peaked formation. The Abbey sitting on its top is well known as Santa Maria de Montserrat, which hosts the famous Black Madonna: La Moreneta.

    • Then, start hiking from the monastery, following a beautiful path that goes around the peaks of the mountain. As you pass by, the many natural viewpoints will offer awesome views of the abbey and the forests around. When you've reached the highest point of the route, breathtaking 360° panoramic views of the multi-peaked rocky range will awe you! If you are fortunate enough to have clear skies, you might be able to see the Pyrenees and most of the country.

    • After admiring those great landscapes, taking some pictures, and savouring some typical Catalan snacks, start descending through a shady path between the mountain forests that will bring us back to the Abbey.

    • Visit the farmers market and relax or hear the famous Escolania de Montserrat boys choir sing (on working days from Monday to Friday, subject to Basilica capacity).
