TOUR DESCRIPTION

After 50 minutes drive from Barcelona we will first visit in Montserrat its Benedictine Abbey, first built on the 11th century and home to Catalonia’s Patroness Saint, The Black Madonna, a strong symbol of spirituality and unity for the local people.

After we will get on funicular railway to go to the top of the mountain from where we enjoy the stunning views from the Natural Park of Montserrat and the rest of Catalonia from a bird´s eye view. Mediterranean Sea, main valley of the country and the Pyrenees further away, drawing the border with France.

During the hike we will walk on the same paths used by pilgrims hundreds of years ago, we will get inspired by Montserrat’s fascinating flora and fauna and we will experience UNIque ways where rocky pillars and ravines show us how inner mysterious water emerge from the hidden and undiscovered very center of the massif.

Back down to the Monastery, we will have the opportunity to attend to one of the oldest Boys Choirs in Europe (Except Saturdays), which has its origin on the 14th century.

Where you'll be

Montserrat is the heart of Catalan identity. Its combination of history, spirituality, nature and culture make Montserrat such a UNIque Experience.

First we are at the Abbey to visit the Atrium, Basilica and Black Madonna. After we take the funicular railway to reach the most impressive viewpoint of the Natural Park. Downhill walking we enjoy some breathtaking parts of this rock formation, while we share the legends hidden in the mountain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 5 reviews.

David was our guide and everything was fantastic! He picked us up in the morning and we were able to beat the crowds in the mountain. He was very patient with us when we were slow or wanted to take more pics. And he shared so much interesting information with us! Thank you for a great day!!

Die Wanderung und die location sind wundervoll und richtig beeindruckend, wenn man Glück mit dem Wetter hat. Uni ist ein sehr herzlicher, hilfsbereiter und aufmerksamer guide mit viel Erfahrung im Gelände und umfassenden Sprachkenntnissen. Die ganze Erfahrung war etwas ganz besonderes. Tausend Dank!

This tour was amazing and Uni was a great host! Montserrat was STUNNING, and everyone visiting Barcelona MUST go. Uni was truly an expert and had lots of interesting insight and experience. He knew the hiking trails in and out, and answered our many many questions. Taking the train up and then hiking down was the perfect combination of beautiful but not too strenuous. Absolutely recommend this tour!!!
