Montserrat Tour

The Montserrat is regarded by many Catalans as the most important spiritual and cultural center of Catalonia. The Benedictine Monastery of Montserrat is where the monks worship Catalonia's Patron Saint, the black Madonna of Montserrat. As you travel up the mountains to the XIV c Monastery you will have a chance to admire the unique stone formation of this natural park and the breathtaking views from the Shrine at 721 m (2100 feet).

The Mountain of Montserrat is 1 hour 30 minutes from Barcelona by train and cable car. You will have an historical and cultural introduction to the Monastery as well as a geological approach to the natural park. Discover why they worship the Black Madonna and how the shepherds found her. At the monastery you can choose between a visit to the Basilica of the XII c “Moreneta” or taking the funicular to Sant Joan for spectacular views across Catalonia.

Don't miss the singing of the Escolania Choir (little school) one of the most prestigious children's choirs in Europe. The Escolania was founded in the XIV c and they sing Mondays to Fridays and Sundays in the Basilica.

Tour Itinerary: Montserrat Tour Only. The Escolania Choir sing on Mondays to Fridays and Sundays.

Tour Reviews

Barbara (US) – Montserrat and Gaudi Group City Tour: I want to thank you for a great job on our Gaudi tour and our Montserrat tour for 10 people. David our tour guide was excellent and our clients were very impressed. Also I won 6 bottles of wine from your picture contest and shared these with our clients.

Julia (USA)  - Montserrat Family Tour: We really enjoyed it!! It was great to be picked up from the airport and taken to Montserrat. Loved our escort and the driver was great, too. It couldn’t have been a better experience! More and more of my friends and family seem to be vacationing in Europe. You can be sure I will highly recommend Catalonia Tours to everyone I can. Thanks especially to Stephen who answered countless emails from me filled with questions!

Jennifer (USA) – Montserrat Group Coach Tour: "What a fabulous day the weather was great, Montserrat spectacular and everybody thought the guide was awesome. Thank you for organizing such a great day"

Jim (USA) – Montserrat Walking Tour: "The trip to Montserrat with Jose Maria - we couldn't have asked for a better guide. He took the time to give us history and shared his background having grown up in the area. The ride to Montserrat was interesting as well as Montserrat itself. We felt very comfortable with our guide and would recommend it highly to anyone interested in seeing the area. Thanks again for meeting us personally each day before the trip."
