    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Abadia de Montserrat, Carretera BP-1121 S/N, 08199 Montserrat Spain

    The mountain of Montserrat is situated 45km northwest of Barcelona. This multi-peaked mountain is also a unique Natural Park plenty of shapes, caves, stairs and paths. You can enjoy wonderful views from the top of it as well as its own weird shapes and rounded peaks. A unique visit!

    Montserrat is a Benedictine monastery nearly 1000 years old where you can find the Black Madonna, also known as La Moreneta, which represents the patron saint of Catalonia. This figure is very popular because in honour of her, Gregorian chants will be singing every day.

    Montserrat is thriving with culture: paintings, gold lamps, decorated chapels and so on. Enjoy also the library of 300,000 volumes and the museum where El Greco, Dalí, Picasso and other treasures from ancient Egypt can be found.

    The visit will coincide with the Boys’ Choir Midday Concert if they children are performing that day.

    On arrival our guide will give a tour to the main places such as the museum with a great collection of paintings, the different bars, restaurants and shops that are located there and also the monastery and basilica, two of the main attractions.

    The guide will give explanations outside the basilica as silence must be kept inside it. You'll be shown the Lady's Chapel of the 12th Century figure of the Lady of Montserrat.

    Tour members will have free time to dedicate to the aspects of this beautiful and spiritual place that attract them most.

    I loved this trip. The bus was comfortable and the assembly site easy to find. Irina was our guide and she is a gem. Very informative and very personable. I wish she could have taken us around the whole city in our week in Barcelona....More

    Hiking Montserrat outside of Barcelona, was a highlight of our visit to Spain. The name means “the serrated mountain” because the columns look cut out. We went with “Barcelona Walking” and their guide Fermi was great. He led us with patience, humor and even brought...More
