  • Tour by Sanctuary of Montserrat
The Montserrat mountain is a massive rock that climbs to a height of more than 4000 feet to offer some of the best views that the city has to offer. However, the biggest highlight of this unique natural park is its weird shapes and rounded peaks that jut out of nowhere, hidden stairs, pathways, hermitages and chapels that are scattered along its mind-blowing landscape.

Montserrat is a Benedictine monastery nearly 1000 years old, perched half way up the mountain and sheltered by its peaks. There is a basilica with the Chapel of Our Lady of Montserrat known as La Moreneta, the patron saint of Catalonia, and a presence strongly felt and revered. The community of monks also runs a boys' school devoted to the study of music.

Montserrat is culture: a library of nearly 300,000 volumes; the oldest boys' choir in Europe; a basilica full of paintings, gold lamps and decorated chapels, a museum with paintings by El Greco, Picasso and Dalí among many others and treasures from ancient Egypt.

Picturesque Drive: along the Llobregat River to the foot of the spectacular Montserrat mountain (its name means serrated, a reference to its jutting peaks), a natural park, and then up to the Sanctuary 725m (2380 feet) above sea level. Your guide will entertain you with tales, history and legends of the mountain, the monastery and the shrine. The return journey will be an alternative route accompanied by recordings of a variety of traditional Catalan music.

Montserrat Monastery: guided orientation tour. On arrival to Montserrat your guide will give a tour to orient you to the main places of interest: monastery, basilica, museum with a marvelous collection of paintings, Stations of the Cross, as well as bars, restaurants, shops and home products market.

Montserrat Basilica: Silence must be kept inside the church so your guide will give you explanations outside and show you Our Lady’s Chapel with the 12th Century figure of Our Lady of Montserrat.

“It is definitely worth the time to take a tour to Montserrat. Our guide, Oliver, was fantastic and so knowledgeable. The only thing I would have liked was a little more time to explore but it was worth the trip to see the monastery and be on the mountain.”
Montserrat – worth it even in a downpour.

“This is pretty much what you'd expect in visiting a monastery – dramatic, pristine, well cared for. An easy trip from Barcelona – better on a guided tour.”
