Full description
Your experience begins 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 location 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. The whimsical shapes of the most emblematic mountain of Catalonia are the result of a geological and geomorphological process of millions of years. Upon arrival, you will visit the Monastery, which was founded in the 10th century and still functions to this day. It is also well-known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta (visit not guaranteed), 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.

The Sant Joan funicular offers an impressive panoramic view of Montserrat Mountain from a height of 1,000 meters above sea level. From the viewpoint, you can enjoy unparalleled views of the surrounding region. Once you have been impressed with the visit to the interior of the monastery, you will begin a moderate trek down to reach the Masia Farmhouse, with your specialized guide. During the descent, if you look closely, you can find among the most characteristic fauna of the area, such as wild boars, goats and Bonelli Eagles.

Following your trek, you will enjoy a delicious 3-course menu at a local farmhouse. In August, the restaurant will not be at the usual location, but you will be able to appreciate the views of Montserrat. Following this day full of adventures, you will return to the center of Barcelona.
