Early morning Montserrat guided tour
With a local guide
About this experience
Come with us to the rolling hills outside of Barcelona, the majestic Montserrat!
Leave Barcelona early in the morning and discover the Montserrate with the best atmosphere, with no crowds ruining the mood!
We are going to have a short trip to Montserrat on our air-conditioned bus while our guide will introduce you to the history of this fascinating site.
The monastery of Montserrat is blessed by a unique natural framework with Mediterranean sea to the east and the Pyrenees mountains to the west, looming in the distance.
Upon our arrival, we will go straight to the Gothic Basilica, snuggled between the towering rock spires and cliffs that gave Montserrat its name.
Discover the Black Madonna
You can't come to Montserrat without admiring the legendary Black Madonna, a statue characterized by an insert history, some say it has been carved in Jerusalem in the late 12th Century. This Romanesque statue, entirely made of wood, is also surrounded by myth and legends: according to one, the Benedictine monks could not move the statue by any means so they had to build the monastery around it. The Black Madonna and its fame have turned Montserrat into a significant pilgrimage site.
You will have some free time you can spend as you wish: you can, for instance, take the cable car ride to enjoy unbelievable panoramic views or visit the nearby museum of contemporary art, an unusual home to masterpieces by artists such as Monet, Picasso, and Dalí.
On top of this, you will have the chance to taste the local specialties, because the monastery let visitors sample and purchase their fine products. These handmade gastronomic foods are a genuine taste of regional Catalan cuisine which you can't miss before coming back to the city.
