Full description
The experience starts in the upper part of Passeig de Gràcia, before journeying to experience the natural splendor of 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, admire the Massif of Montserrat, a spectacular multi-peaked rocky range packed of unique needle-shape formations.

Forget about traffic with long queues and catch the Aeri up to Montserrat. You’ll delight yourself with the unbeatable panoramic views of the famous monumental Rosary of the Virgin. Upon arrival, visit the Monastery, which was founded in the 10th century and still functions to this day, with over 150 monks. It is also well-known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta (the dark one), who is the patron saint of Catalonia. Your guide will bring history alive by explaining the history and ventures of this Monastery dating nearly a thousand years.
