Overview
Religious landmarks are best explored in peace. However, the crowds that many attract make this impossible. Explore Montserrat monastery in tranquility on a hassle-free tour that includes an early-access pass to the abbey. Choose between just the priority admission ticket, or a package that includes round-trip transport and a guided visit of the monastery that guarantees to reveal information that you may otherwise have missed.
What to Expect

Depending on the option chosen at checkout, your experience begins with pickup from a designated meeting point in central Barcelona. Greet your guide and board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Montserrat. If you chose the ticket-only option, you’ll make your own way to the abbey for a self-guided tour.

On arrival, sail past the line that often forms outside of the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey and take a guided tour of the monastery. Visit La Moreneta (The Black Madonna), a 12th-century wooden carving, and admire the design of the sacristy and atrium. Plus, during a visit to the Museum of Montserrat, you’ll admire 13th- to 18th-century paintings by the likes of Berruguete, Caravaggio, El Greco, and Morales.

The tour concludes with drop-off back at your original departure point in Barcelona.

Montserrat monastery early access tour.

Early Access the way to go.

Absolutely fantastic. Ease to find departure point at the Placa Catalunya. Getting up early for the early access definitely the way to go with a great tour guide out to the Pyrenees Mountains. Absolutely packed and buses parked a long way down the mountain when...More

Must see if in Barcelona.

Was on my list of things to see whilst here, I was drawn in by the £19 transport only ticket, but not sure what triggers availability for it. Ended up paying for the guided tour and the young girl was very helpful and knowledgeable. Would...More

Tour had high points, but not enough

First the good points. The early access was well worth getting up early. The view from the monastery was spectacular, and the funicular and hike to St. Joan were great. We were able to see the Black Madonna with only a 1/2 hour wait. However,...More

The tour bus meets at 6:30 at Placa Catalunya in front of the Hard Rock Cafe (you can find this information at Amigos Tours' website) and lasts about 5 hours (2 hours of driving round trip). So the time at Montserrat itself... More
