A day tour from Barcelona to Montserrat is a must for the majority of visitors to Barcelona. It's probably the one place outside of Barcelona that they have heard all about before they even arrive.
The advantage of taking one of our small group day tours from Barcelona is that we can avoid the crowds and stay well clear of the other larger tour operators.
Our day starts at 8.30am or 1.45pm from our office. From here, the journey to Montserrat takes us about an hour or so.
One of the main reasons people book with us is that they want the intimacy of a small group, but like to have somebody there to explain things.
Keeping to our philosophy of giving you plenty of free time to explore on your own, but guiding you in the right direction, the first thing we do on arrival is explained the various options that you have.
A visit to the sanctuary where the ‘Moreneta’ or Black Madonna is housed is a must. The sanctuary has been in use for almost 1000 years for those pilgrims and other visitors who have climbed this spectacular mountain.
You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the fascinating Museum of Montserrat, with its five collections, ranging from Archaeology from the Biblical East to Modern Painting and Sculpture.
Besides these cultural possibilities, there are numerous walks around Montserrat, ranging from easy strolls to serious hikes. Each trail offers a different perspective on the stunning views of the surrounding landscape, many of which are peppered with small chapels and hermitages.
You'll easily find a route to suit your taste and energy levels. But whether they're fairly strenuous treks or gentle walks, they all give you fantastic views to marvel at the unspoiled beauty of this protected natural park.
If you'd rather not walk at all, then another option is to take one of the two rack railways, or the cable car, offering yet more views of the area.
After a few hours in Montserrat, we will head back to the bus and drive back down the other side of the mountain to Barcelona.
After your morning or afternoon Montserrat tour, you will have the opportunity to visit Sagrada Familia.
We have for you the ‘Skip the Line’ entrance ticket to Sagrada Familia.
10% charges for cancellation from the booking date.
Cancellations less than 96 hours or no show, a fee of 100% will be charge.
