Full description

MONTSERRAT:

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 make 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. 

ARTISTIC:

Departure time: 15h30.

Barcelona is known as the capital of Modernism, where the famous architect Antoni Gaudí lived and worked. During this tour, we will have occasion to know some of his most important works.

We will begin our journey through the exterior of the Basilica and Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Familia, a masterpiece that Gaudí left unfinished and which is one of the most visited monuments in the world. Thanks to our guide we can discover historical details and much of the symbolism behind the ornamentation of this majestic building.

Then, again on the bus, we will access the upper part of Barcelona where Park Güell is located, with splendid panoramic views of the city. This park is one of the most emblematic works of the architect and where he displayed all his creative talent with a fully naturalistic and organic style. The place was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Our visit will end with a pleasant walk through one of the main streets of Barcelona, the Paseo de Gracia, where among prestigious brands shops there are numerous buildings of modernist aesthetics, among them the Casa Batlló and the Casa Milá "La Pedrera", both of Gaudí. At this point our visit will end, just ten minutes walk from Plaza Cataluña.
