Montserrat is a must-see while visiting Barcelona. The scenery and history is absolutely incredible. Our guide, Giovanna, was fantastic! A great half-day trip.
After convening at a central meeting point in Barcelona, board an air-conditioned coach bus destined for Montserrat, home to one of Spain’s most prestigious pilgrimage sites.
On reaching the foot of the mountain, hop on a cogwheel train, and learn about the effect that hundreds of years of erosion have had on the mountain. On arrival at the Benedictine abbey at the mountain’s summit, take a guided tour and admire La Moreneta, otherwise known as Our Lady of Montserrat.
After free time to explore the monastery grounds independently, return to your original Barcelona departure point by coach.

Our tour guide, Carla, was rude to ethnic families. It was a bilingual tour, yet most of the tour was conducted in Spanish. The majority of the group (28/30) were English speaking. We spent a ridiculous amount of time in the museum/gift shop discussing timeline...More
