We offer you a unique day to discover the Monastery of Montserrat, a place of pilgrimage and singular beauty that you cannot miss in your visit to Barcelona.

Your tour to the Monastery of Montserrat begins from Barcelona on a comfortable bus to the mountains of Montserrat , which rises majestically to 4,051 feet (1,236 meter).

The curious forms of Montserrat rocks, for centuries sculpted by wind and rain, have unleashed the popular imagination to see human or animal forms in some of its peaks, giving them names and inventing legends to explain its fantastic origin.

When you arrive in Montserrat, you will go up to the Monastery of Montserrat with Cog- Wheel Train which leaves you in the middle of the Monastery. During the 15 minutes trip to ascend, you will enjoy a privileged and beautiful view of the mountain.

The Cog- Wheel Train has panoramic windows which make the actual journey an interesting attraction. It is air-conditioned and completely wheelchair-friendly.

You will access to the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th century Romanesque carving of Virgen Moreneta, the Black Virgin and patron of Catalonia, while your guide will give you interesting information about the history of Montserrat.

In addition, you will have opportunity to visit the audio-visual room where images of the history and creation of the monastery are projected.

On some days the children's choir sings in the monastery and so you may be fortunate enough to catch one of their delightful performances.

To finish your visit, you will taste the typical liqueurs created by the monks of the monastery before returning to Barcelona with an unforgettable memory of your visit.
