Description
After driving through picturesque little villages you will arrive at the incomparable setting of the craggy mountain of Montserrat, which rises majestically up from the plain to 4,051 feet (1,235 meters) and has amazing views.

The Royal Basilica of Montserrat has been one of Spain's most important pilgrimage sites for hundreds of years, due to its famous 12th-century Romanesque carving of the Virgen Moroneta (the Black Virgin). On weekday afternoons, there is the opportunity to hear one of Europe's oldest children's choirs: La Escolania de Montserrat.

Having heard an introduction to Montserrat from your guide, learning about its importance in past and present times, use your free time (roughly 2.5 hours) to explore independently and discover the site’s magic on your own. Then, meet back up with your guide later to travel back to Barcelona by coach.

Great 1/2 day tour from Barcelona. The guide was great, there isn't very much history to the area that is all that exciting. Some may enjoy taking a train to the mountain and then seeing it on your own time, but it was a great trip with a good amount of free time. I would recommend!

A serene visit to Montserrat, a great day trip from Barcelona. Stunning views with a lot history to absorb. The tour was well worth the money spent. The bus was comfortable and on time, everything was as described in the tour description.

Tour was amazing. I wish we booked the full day tour to Monserrat but nonetheless our guide Nazeem made it all worthwhile and was profoundly knowledgeable of its history.

This was an average trip not enough time to fully explore and walk the great trails available.

Montserrat is lovely. Just wish we had more time to queue for the Black Madonna, which was the main objective for our visit.
