Take a short trip from Barcelona to nearby Catalonia's Montserrat on this small-group tour! With a local guide, head to the top of this rugged mountain to see its main attraction, the Virgin of Montserrat. Then take a walk to enjoy amazing views, or check out a museum. You can combine this experience with another quintessential Barcelona activity by upgrading to include a skip-the-line ticket to Antoni Gaudi’s extraordinary La Sagrada Familia basilica. Enjoy personal attention from your guide on this small-group tour, limited to 20 people.

Highlights

  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Flexibility to customize your itinerary to your own preferences
  • Fully narrated tour
Meet your guide in central Barcelona and board your comfortable minivan for the scenic one-hour drive to Montserrat. From the base of the craggy mountain, you have the option to ride up in a cable car (own expense) for fabulous valley views. Alternatively, stay on board with your guide to drive to the mountaintop by minivan.

At the top of Montserrat, visit the 1,000-year-old Santa Maria de Montserrat Basilica to see its claim to fame: the Virgin of Montserrat. Then tour the Museum of Montserrat’s collection of religious art, artifacts and sculpture. If you don't want to visit the museum, follow trails that wind around the mountaintop for wonderful views of Catalonia. For equally stunning views you can take a ride around the mountaintop by rack railway (own expense).

Your tour then finishes with a drop-off at the start point in central Barcelona.

La Sagrada Familia Upgrade:
Make the most of your time in Barcelona by combining your Montserrat tour with skip-the-line entry to Antoni Gaudí’s La Sagrada Familia church. With this upgrade, you can choose the time and date of your visit, giving you the freedom to fit it in with your other plans. Simply request the time and date in the Special Requirements section any time between 10am and 6pm. If you do not yet know when you want to make your visit, you can inform the office staff on the morning of your tour, or when you call to reconfirm. Our unique upgrade option allows you to spend as much time inside the church as you wish!

Simply make your own way to La Sagrada Familia and then head inside to enjoy a 45-minute visit on your own. The wait lines here are almost as legendary as the building’s fantastic architecture, but you can avoid them! Before you go inside, admire the sculpted portals, spires and chapels on a guided walk around the basilica’s exterior. This UNESCO World Heritage site has been under construction since 1882, and is not due for completion until 2026.

This is a must have tour when visiting Barcelona. It was made enjoyable by our guide Geordie (George). Montserrat is really interesting and La Sagrada Famillia is absolutely breathtaking.

Reviewed by: Randhir J, August 2014

This trip was very good. The Monastery and the mountains surrounding it were magnificent. The funnicular ride up to St John was not enjoyable as we had to stand all the way and view was worthless. The view at the top was spectacular.
Jordi the guide and driver was very informative and polite.
The office were very bad and wanted us to wait more than an hour before letting us go to La Sagrada Familia. The office philosophy was that the "customer is always wrong ! "
But it was finally sorted out due to my insistence and after I told them that I have booked and taken tens of tours with Viator.
