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.
