MONTSERRAT TOUR BARCELONA
A visit to one of Spain´s most sacred site. Join our Montserrat Tour!
During the Montserrat tour you will discover one of Spain’s most sacred sites, set in beautiful mountains and about one hour ride from Barcelona. We will drive through picturesque villages to the craggy peak of Montserrat, rising majestically from the plain to 1,200 meters. At the top, we will visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, home of the much revered 12th century carving of the La Moreneta, the Black Virgin. The guide will explain the legends and stories surrounding this sacred place and you will also enjoy the stunning panoramas. Furthermore Montserrat offers a wide range of leisure, nature and cultural options. This a must do tour on your corporate event and for any incentive travel in Barcelona!
You might visit the sanctuary to learn its history and discover its artistic heritage and then have a look around the museum or choose one of the many walks around the mountain and through the forest.
On some days, you may be lucky enough to see and hear the Montserrat Monastery’s famous Boys’ Choir.
The tour is usually 5 hours, however we combine the Montserrat tour with both Wineries in the Penedés, and/or hiking in the Montserrat mountains. It is a tour that is flexible and due to this suitable for any group, from students to corporate and incentive travel!
We work with high standard vehicle for all our tours, along with official guides. As an option, we can also book the “cremallera” the last part of the journey, this is a train service giving visitors magnificent views as it ascends more than 600 meters up the mountain. For even more excitement, we offer the option of the air cable car that dates back to the 1930’s almost 100 years old!
