What to expect

Take a break from sightseeing in the city and enjoy this exciting adventure to one of the most mysterious and magical places in Catalonia. You will travel in small groups, allowing you to enjoy a more personalized experience with a bilingual guide, who will give you expert local insight into the most deeply rooted cultural traditions.

The tour operator will pick you up at your accommodation and take comfortable private transportation to the mountain of Montserrat. This magnificent 4,000 ft wonder is easily recognizable from afar by its serrated roof, from which its name comes from.

And 2,380 feet above sea level, the Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat is situated in a stunning location, surrounded by an unforgettable natural landscape. The monastery has served as a center for the spiritual retreat for almost one thousand years. First you will visit the basilica, where the Virgin Santa Maria of Montserrat, patron saint of Catalonia, is located. The Romanesque statue of the Black Madonna originates from the XII century and is today surrounded by a golden altar. According to legend, the Virgin personally appeared in the IX century, giving rise to the hermitage of Santa Maria.

Next, you'll take a walking tour of the monastery surroundings. Enjoy the unparalleled views offered by this region, which was declared as a Natural Park in 1987. You will also discover the Holy Cave where the virgin is said to have appeared. The site has, since then, become an authentic center for pilgrimage and prayer.

A musical treat will conclude the mystical Montserrat visit as you will listen to the angelic voices of La Escolania de Montserrat; one of the oldest boys’ choirs in Europe.
