Montserrat Day Trip

A Visit to Mystical Montserrat

One of the best trips you can take outside of Barcelona is to Montserrat. Visit the nearly 1,000 year old monsatery as well as the Holy Image of the Virgin of Montserrat. Find out why this place is such an important sactuary for the Catalan people and see some of the spectacular views for yourself. Below is a sample itinerary for a 5-hour trip designed to beat the crowds and have you back in Barcelona for lunch, but this private tour can be adjusted to your groups needs.

Private Transfer

A private car and driver is the fastest way to get to Montserrat, allowing you to take best advantage of your time!

Great Photo Opportunities

Montserrat offers some incredible photo opportunities all around.

Visit the Throne

Entrance to the basilica and a visit to the Virginof Montserrat are included. Tickets to the Museum of Montserrat are an additional cost.

Short Walk

While optional, I recommend a short walk out to Saint Michael's Cross for some of the best views of the Monastery. You will need a moderate level of fitness and good shoes!
