Enjoy a getaway to the Montserrat mountains on a half-day trip from Barcelona! You'll visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat with its 12th-century carving of the Black Virgin and, after hearing its history from a guide, enjoy free time to explore.

Highlights

  • Fully narrated tour
  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
After driving through picturesque little villages you will arrive at the incomparable setting of the craggy mountain of Montserrat, which rises majestically up from the plain to 4,051 feet (1,235 meters) and has amazing views.

The Royal Basilica of Montserrat has been one of Spain's most important pilgrimage sites for hundreds of years, due to its famous 12th-century Romanesque carving of the Virgen Moroneta (the Black Virgin). On weekday afternoons, there is the opportunity to hear one of Europe's oldest children's choirs: La Escolania de Montserrat.

Having heard an introduction to Montserrat from your guide, learning about its importance in past and present times, use your free time (roughly 2.5 hours) to explore independently and discover the site’s magic on your own. Then, meet back up with your guide later to travel back to Barcelona by coach.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The was a great fog when we arrived at the top, so that we could not see more than 10 feet in front of us. This gave an interesting ambiance - the fog slowly lifted as the morning went on, revealing the mountain side and fantastic views of the basilica. We stood in line to touch the Madonna statue and the boys choir performed as we reached the area in front with the statue. We enjoyed walking around the area and the views on the ride back down the mountain. We highly recommend this tour.
