Full description
Enjoy this excursion to Montserrat from Barcelona aboard a comfortable bus. During the tour your expert guide will explain what to see in Montserrat, the beautiful mountain enclave at 1200 meters high with amazing rock formations. Numerous myths and legends began here, where one of the oldest monasteries in Catalonia is located.

Once in Montserrat, you can visit the Basilica of the Monastery on your own, where you will find the famous carving of the Virgin of Montserrat known as "La Moreneta" because of the color of the skin.

You will have the opportunity to take a panoramic Funicular of Montserrat, as the tickets for this attraction are included. This funicular offers a spectacular panoramic view of Montserrat Mountain, 1,000 m above sea level.

The viewpoint offers a bird’s-eye view of the monastery as well as spectacular views of the surrounding area and the Pyrenees.
