    Meet your tour guide at your hotel. Take the train and enjoy the Catalonian landscape view while we head to Monistrol, where you will choose between cable car or train ride up the mountain. Enjoy panoramic views and lush landscapes. Visit the Santa María de Montserrat Abbey, a Benedictine monastery founded in the eleventh century, and take amazing pictures from its viewpoint.

    Visit the Virgin of Montserrat, known as Black Madonna “La Moreneta”, a wood carving of the twelfth century, which is the patron saint of Catalonia.

    Listen the choir of L’Escolania de Montserrat, one of the most famous and oldest boy-choirs in Europe. Try the typical Coca de Montserrat, a fluffy, elongated cake topped with sugar.

    Do some hiking to an amazing viewpoint located about 25 minutes away from the monastery or watch an audiovisual to know the life of the monks, then have lunch to recharge batteries and return to central Barcelona.

    For those who love nature and culture, this will be a great experience, for sure.

This was one of the best tours we've ever done. Our guide, Jordi, picked us up at the hotel and took us by subway and train to Montserrat where we rode the cable car to the top. Jordi was extremely knowledgeable and we very much enjoyed spending the day with him. We gained so much insight into Montserrat but also Catalunya and Barcelona. A very interesting person! We were totally enchanted by the boys choir! The church is so beautiful. We enjoyed a lovely coffee and local pastery at the monastery and later enjoyed a wonderful lunch. We very much enjoyed this tour!

Great tour...only wish it could have been twice as long...there is much to see at Montserrat. Prepare for it if you have time, by reading up on the black madonna there, and others in Europe, and by reading about the fine collection in the art museum. Beautiful site, well worth the time to train up to it and back.
