Full Tour Description
Your guide will pick you up from your hotel / apartment in Barcelona. After 45 minutes drive in a comfortable AC Minivan, you will arrive at Montserrat. You will start the day visiting the Benedictine abbey of Santa Maria de Montserrat where you will discover its amazing history. “Montserrat” literally means “sawed mountain” in Catalan because of its multi-peaked rocky range. It is well known as the site of the Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat which hosts the famous Black Madonna “La Moreneta”, patron saintness of the Catalans.
Once we have visited the Montserrat Monastery we will take Sant Joan Funicular up the Mountain and hike Montserrat beautiful trails to enjoy incredible panoramic views of its singular rock formations. As you walk arround Montserrat Natural Park you will have breathtaking views of 360 degrees over the multi-peaked rocky range and on clear days we would be able to see the Pyrenees mountains and Barcelona!
After admiring those great landscapes, taking some pictures, and savoring some typical Catalan snacks (please bring your own sandwich for lunch), we will start descending through a shady path between forests of the mountain that will bring us back to the Abbey where we will have some free time to relax or visit the farmers market before coming back to Barcelona.
