Full description
Begin by meeting your guide in the center of Barcelona, from where your unique experience begins. Join your group in an air-conditioned private vehicle for the journey up the mountain of Montserrat. Enjoy the views as you hear about Montserrat’s Basilica and Monastery, home of la Moreneta (Black Madonna). Unlike other tours, this experience allows you to gain early access to visit the Montserrat Monastery, well before the crowds arrive. Upon your arrival, enjoy a 45-minute guided tour throughout which you learn about Montserrat including its secrets. This tour also sees you visiting the farmer’s market and entering the basilica. You guide then explains all the fun activities you can do with your 2 hours of free time following the guided tour. You can visit la Moreneta (Black Madonna), enter the museum, taste the monastery’s homemade liquor, go to an easy walk to the Saint Miguel, take the Sant Joan Funicular, and much more.

This was a wonderful tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny, and helpful. Unfortunately, school is out for the summer holiday so we did not hear the boys choir and at the time of our visit (a Sunday morning), they were holding mass so we were unable to go inside the sanctuary.

My family and I really enjoyed this tour to Montserrat. We especially liked our knowledgeable guide Daniel and the private bus transfer. Our guide gave us a ton of information about the mountain on the way there and then led us on a walking tour to see the basilica and the Moreneta before the crowds arrived. Then we had free time so our family split up...some went to shop and grab a snack, others went for a hike, and others explored the museum. Caught a quick nap on the bus ride back to Barcelona. I would definitely recommend this tour.

It was so nice to have all the logistics handled and to just walk right in to see the Black Madonna. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable and we had the perfect amount of time to explore on our own. I liked how he gave us the option of staying with him to learn more or doing our own thing.
