Full description

Take a day trip from Barcelona to visit Monserat. Take in the mountain views, visit the famous monastery, then head to a local farmhouse for a delicious dinner.

Begin in the upper part of Passeig de Gràcia. Then journey to the natural splendor of Montserrat, Catalonia’s most emblematic mountain topped by a Benedictine Monastery. Montserrat is an ideal trip to spend a day in nature, just a few kilometers away from Barcelona.

En route to the Monastery, admire the Massif of Montserrat, a multi-peaked rocky range packed with needle-shaped formations. Upon arrival, visit the Monastery, which was founded in the 10th century and still functions with 150 monks to this day. 

It famously hosts the dark figure of La Moreneta, who is the patron saint of Catalonia. Your guide will explain the Monastery's history, which dates back nearly a thousand years. After the visit, you will have free time to buy a souvenir and take pictures.

Next, visit a farmhouse with stunning views. Enjoy a delicious 3-course menu; consisting of salad, barbecued food (with vegetarian and halal options), and dessert. Following this adventurous day, return to the center of Barcelona by private transport.

We had such a beautiful day spent with a lovely group and the most amazing tour guide, Mateo who explained everything so clearly and made the day super fun. would love to get in touch with the 2 ladies that were in our group who are from San Francisco area, one was called Rosa.

Monserrat is a must see in my opinion. Unfortunately due to the wild fires we didn’t get to the very top, but still a worthwhile excursion. I would highly recommend doing the trip with the Farmhouse lunch and drinks, especially if you enjoy interacting with your fellow travelers and locals. Our guide was very pleasant, informative, helpful and engaging. Also, we were transported in a Mercedes Van with AC…definitely a plus.

Richard, our tour guide was very knowledge and made sure he spent personal time with each member of the tour to ensure they were enjoying themselves and if they had any special request or problems. Montserrat Monastery and surrounding areas was beautiful. The lunch at the farmhouse was tasty and plentiful. No one left hungry. The wine did not disappoint either. This was the perfect ending for our last day in Barcelona.
