Full description

Montserrat is a rock formation, located 50km south-west of Barcelona, traditionally considered the most important and significant mountain in Catalonia. Its importance is so great that, in 1987, Montserrat was declared a Natural Park to guarantee its conservation. Its highest peak has 1236 meters high! You can now imagine the stunning views from the top, right?

This mountain became famous after the miraculous apparition of the Virgin with the baby Jesus on her arms, in one of the caves of the mountain, what immediately created a special phenomenon on the region. Known as "La Moreneta", the image of the Virgin is kept in the Monastery Church. Have the opportunity to visit it!

Due to the legend, the mountain of Montserrat has been very linked with spirituality and one of the greatest pilgrimage sites in Catalonia. The main monastery is located at a height of 720 meters above sea level and today is formed by a community of eighty monks who follow the rule of San Benito.

During the first part of the tour, we will make a guided tour with our guide who will offer us 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.

Wonderful
Both the tour narrator on the bus and the bus driver were excellent. The bus driver expertly drove up to and back from Montserrat. Montserrat sits in an amazing location atop strangely sculpted mountains. There's a very good museum there, don't miss the introductory 7-minute film. There's a store with gifts and tastings of liqueurs. I recommend it!
