Guided excursion for incredible views from the Pyrenees to the sea and a one-on-one with the Black Madonna. Montserrat, the serrated mountain, is a unique Natural Park and a massive rock reaching over 1200 meters (4000 feet).
It is visible for miles, with weird shapes and rounded peaks that jut into the sky; there are paths, stairs, caves, chapels and hermitages scattered over the mountain, extraordinary landscapes and wonderful views. The Benedictine monastery is nearly 1000 years old, perched half way up the mountain and sheltered by its peaks. There is a basilica with the Chapel of Our Lady of Montserrat known as La Moreneta – the Black Madonna – the patron saint of Catalonia and a presence strongly felt and revered. The community of monks hosts a library of nearly 300,000 volumes and the oldest boys’ choir in Europe!
We will guide the whole tour exclusively in English!
Using one language allows the guide to build a continuous story and have the time to tell you many more things without breaking the flow by constantly translating, so the tours are more interesting and enjoyable.
Avoid queues/lines for tours and monuments: visit the most popular monuments and walk straight in. Skip the long queues and save time and energy.
