Highlights
  • Escape Barcelona's big city hustle-bustle and enjoy a guided getaway to the majestic natural scenery of Montserrat

Description

They might look like something from a fairytale, but the enchanting mountains of Montserrat are very real! Escape the bustle of Barcelona and experience the calm side of Catalonia with a guided tour of this heavenly mountain sanctuary. Ride a railway up the rugged mountainside and experience some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe.

Barcelona is beautiful, but it's also busy. Catch a break from all the big city clamor and take yourself for a wander in the spiritual soul of Catalonia. Hop aboard an airy coach and be swept into the mesmerizing natural splendor of Montserrat, while a friendly guide provides insightful commentary along the way.

Like something from a fantasy novel, the mystical-looking mountaintop monastery at Montserrat overlooks a vast expanse of misty peaks, sweeping valleys, and idyllic countryside.

After stretching your legs and double-taking a couple of times, step into a train car, and see the breathtaking vista open up around you as you're whisked up the mountainside. When you arrive, your guide will lead you into a Benedictine monastery with interior design that gives even the Sagrada Familia a run for its money!

The tour hits a fittingly enchanting note at the end, as an angelic serenade by the Escolania de Montserrat boys' choir chimes across the mountains. Prepare for goosebumps - it's beautiful.

Excellent tour and the guide was fabulous. Big thanks to the guide for looking after the group and explaining everything so well in two languages.
One comment though, the two hours allowed in Montserrat is not enough to enjoy the place. Apparently today, 10th May, is a holiday, which we didn’t know. The Mount was crowded and we didn’t get to look in the Monastery and did not listen to the choir. Nobody’s fault at such, but allowing at least 3 hrs would have been more satisfying.

This was a wonderful visit. Our guide was excellent! The only thing that would have made it better, would have been to have more time to spend at Montserrat. But, it was a good introduction for a first time visit there.

Montserrat was incredible. So much so that the day trip, while great, wasn’t enough time to properly enjoy everything there was to do.

Muy recomendable ir a Montserrat, pero falta tiempo para ver todo.
