Like much else in Catalonia, the ancient history dates back to Roman times, when a temple was erected to worship Venus. The Abbey, with 80 Benedictine monks in its midst, is the most important religious retreat in Catalonia containing one of the few Black Madonnas in Europe.

Its religious cult is generated because in the year 880 an image of the virgin was found in a cave in the mountain and it is from that moment that the monastery of Montserrat became one of the most popular places in Catalonia not only for its spectacular views but also to venerate the "moreneta" as the patron saint of Catalonia is popularly known.

Upon arrival at Montserrat, you will enjoy a panoramic ride up the mountain in a cable car that crosses the mountain range. The views are absolutely breathtaking and it is the best means of transport to reach Montserrat comfortably and with the best views.

You can make a first stop at the local farmers' market to watch the hustle and bustle of the vendors and enjoy the local atmosphere before continuing on an easy hike to a viewpoint at the top of Sant Miquel. The view from there is unique and you can see the entire Catalan landscape.

Continuing the tour you will find the church of the monastery of Montserrat: the Santa Maria de Montserrat where you will learn all about the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia to whom the church is dedicated.

If the weather is right, you can also enjoy the extraordinary children's choir of the Escolania.  Montserrat's excellent museum ranges from archaeology to Old Master paintings, gold work and modern art.

  • The guide who will accompany you on the excursion will speak the language you need for your comfort (Spanish, English, French, German, Italian, Chinese)

this was a wonderful half day in the countryside. Our 'small group' was just the two of us, so our guide, Nuria, was able to somewhat modify the tour to our specific needs and interests. She was knowledgable and a lot of fun. We learned about the history of the area as well as an overview of present day political events. She was able to take us to the front of a very long line to enter the Monastery. Overall, we recommend this trip because it was enjoyable to see the countryside. I would, however, not schedule this if you are tight on time. See Barcelona thoroughly first

We had an excellent tour!! Calos our guide was Catalan (of Catalonia) and from Barcelona. He was also an experienced climber and spelunker. He provided in-depth insight not only into the monastery itself, but of Barcola, Montserrat (from a geology and climbing perspective), and the Catalonia culture! The monastery was beautiful and well worth the visit. We did an extended walk to the cave where the Black Madonna was found. The views were incredible

This is a great tour! Our Guide was very close and knowledgable, it was worth it taking a guide. We took the very early tour in the morning and it was a good decision as there are nearly 2 hours drive to Montserrat so we had plenty of time there. I recommend this tour with amazing views and great learnings.

Reservé esta experiencia con varios amigos. Totalmente recomendable, lo único que mejoraría sería el poder reservar a diferentes horas. Pero todo bien.
