Then, visit surreal buildings of one of the world’s most famous architects, Antoni Gaudi. Head to one of his most extraordinary creations, the still unfinished La Sagrada Familia, and stop by Casa Batlo.
See interesting modern buildings like Casa Amataller and Casa Morera on the luxurious shopping strip of Passeig de Gracia. Continue up into the hills to see Gaudi’s lovely urban park, Park Guell, full of multi-colored mosaic sculptures and fairytale houses.
Next, depart Barcelona for a short trip to Montserrat, a nearby mountain, and admire sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. Take a walk through the park and learn about Montserrat’s history from your guide, who’ll point out local shops selling cheese and jam.
Reach Montserrat Basilica, where thousands of pilgrims have journeyed over the century. Learn about the legend of the Black Virgin and, if you’re lucky, catch a performance by La Escalonia, the oldest children's choir in Europe. You’ll then return to the Barcelona port to board your cruise ship.

Great tour - packed a lot in for the day - obviously you could spend a lot more time in Barcelona - but this was a good family option for a one day cruise shore excursion. Meeting up at the cruise terminal was easy - and our family of six shared the tour with another family of five. Saw most of the big sites in Barcelona - and Montserrat was beautiful. The guide's English was good and she shared plenty of information about what we were seeing.

We booked a total of 4 tours through viator, and this was one of our favorites. It was nice to be in a small group rather than with the large groups the cruise ships offer. Not to mention, this one was a lot cheaper. Our tour guide Marta was excellent. If I were to change one thing, I would have spent less time at Montserrat and more time in Barcelona.
