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).

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 around the basilica’s exterior. This UNESCO World Heritage site has been under construction since 1882, and is not due for completion until 2026.

Please note: audio-guide and towers are not included in this ticket.

We loved the Montserrat half - Day tour. It let us see some of the country side around Barcelona. The views from the top of the peak were amazing.

Love the mountains? Then a short drive from Barcelona find Montserrat, the beautiful mountain home of some monks and a great place to get a 360 degree view of the valley all the way to the Pyrenees mountains. There are also several hiking trails to various points. Our guide did a great job of explaining the history of the area and the buildings. We had plenty of time to do some exploring on our own. There was also a local farmer's market onsite the day we visited selling local products honey, cheeses, etc....
