Full description

During the first part of the tour, we will take a guided walking tour through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, the oldest nucleus of the city and historic center. During this early walking visit, we will have the opportunity to visit the Ramblas, the Cathedral Square, the interior of the Cathedral, the old Jewish quarter and the Plaza San Jaime, among other places. The guide will give you free time to visit the Cathedral on your own.

Next, we will take our bus that will take us on a panoramic tour of the rest of the city. We will pass by the elegant Passeig de Gracia, where Casa Batlló and La Pedrera (both houses by Gaudí), the Arc de Triomphe, the Ciutadella Park, the Olympic Village, and the Olympic Port are located, where we will make a brief stop.

During the next part of the tour, we will access the mountain of Montjuïc, an important place for hosting a good part of the facilities of the 1992 Olympic Games. We will go to the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium, where we will make a brief stop, and later we will have the opportunity to enjoy a fabulous panoramic view of the city from the cable car (subject to weather conditions). Then we will go to Poble Espanyol, one of the main attractions of Montjuïc and that constitutes a synthesis of the cultural wealth of Spain. During the visit, we will have free time to enjoy its different environments, where we will find craft shops, restaurants, and bars.

At the end, back on the bus, we will leave Montjuïc and return to the center of the city, passing through the spectacular Plaza de España, where you can admire the Venetian Towers, the fountains of Montjuïc, the MNAC and the CC Las Arenas, built on the old Bullring of the same name. We will arrive at the Plaza de Catalunya, where our tour will end in front of the Hard Rock Café, in the center of the city.

Montserrat is a rock formation, located 50km south-west of Barcelona, traditionally considered the most important and significant mountain in Catalonia. In 1987 Montserrat was declared a natural park to guarantee its conservation.

The importance of the mountain is due to the legend that tells the miraculous apparition of the Virgin with the baby Jesus in one of the caves of the mountain. This image of the Virgin is popularly known as "La Moreneta" because of its dark color, the result of the transformation of the varnish over time, and is considered the patron saint of Catalonia. It is for this reason that in addition to the main monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat, which we will have occasion to visit, the mountain hosts a large number of small churches and hermitages. Let yourself be amazed by its interior!

During the first part of the tour, we will take a guided tour to get an explanation of various aspects of the mountain, as well as the monastery. In addition, the tour includes a tasting of four typical liqueurs from the area and a visit to the Audiovisual Space. Once the guided tour is over, we will have free time to admire the fabulous landscape that this unique spot offers, visit the artisan food market, visit the audiovisual space, and taste the typical liquors.

An interesting day
The cable car was great to see wonderful view of the city. The liquor samples were good and I ended up buying some to take home. Montserrat is a place that can't be missed. It's a beautiful mountain area full of history. This was an amazing overview of the city with just the right balance of walking and bus time.
