Montserrat makes for the perfect half day tour just one hour outside the city of Barcelona. This tour will take you on an amazing journey to the mountain and sanctuary of Montserrat, Catalonia’s spiritual soul. Montserrat combines breathtaking natural beauty with a long and fascinating history. The drive up to the monastery along one of the country’s most scenic roads is memorable. The original monastery was founded in the year 1025, and soon began to receive pilgrims who contributed to spread the stories of miracles worked by the Virgin. Once we get to the monastery, your licensed guide will take you on a walking tour of the monastery grounds, and make Montserrat’s nearly thousand years of history come alive. If you take a morning tour, we’ll time it so that we are there in time to listen to the “Escolania”, one of Europe’s oldest singing choirs, before returning to Barcelona.
