Minimum one day you should spend here. Amazing view. Unic mountains. Very nice church and everything around.
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.

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to impart that to us. The road was closed due to a collapse but we circumvented it and were able to enjoy the full experience. The sequence was altered but we got everything in. The monastery...More
