Full description
Make your first stop of the day in Montserrat, Catalonia’s most emblematic mountain. Topped by a Benedictine Monastery, Montserrat is an ideal half-day trip to spend a fun day in nature, just a few kilometers away from Barcelona. On the way to the monastery, on-board a luxury minibus, admire the Massif of Montserrat, a spectacular multi-peaked rocky range packed of unique needle-shaped formations.

Upon arrival, visit the monastery founded in the 10th century, still functioning to this day with over 150 monks. It is also well-known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta (visit dependent on availability), who is the patron saint of Catalonia. Your guide will bring the past alive by explaining the history and ventures of this monastery dating back nearly a thousand years.

Next, head to a nearby equestrian center, located at the foothill of the Massif. Get ready for a thrilling horseback ride along the national park, offering breathtaking views of Montserrat, an entertaining and original way to discover the Catalan landscape. Learn how to communicate with your horse, learn the basics of grooming, saddling and practice your riding skills as you enjoy the freedom and tranquility of the countryside. Led by experienced guides, the route is suitable for everyone. Enjoy the ride and the spectacular sights of the mountain. Then, return back to Barcelona.
