Full description
After pick-up from your accommodation, take a comfortable private journey to the mountain of Montserrat. This magnificent 4,000-foot wonder is easily recognizable from afar by its serrated top from which it gets its name.

And 2,380 feet above sea level, the Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat enjoys a stunning location, surrounded by an unforgettable natural landscape. The monastery has served as a center for spiritual retreat for almost one thousand years. You will first visit the basilica, where the Virgin Santa Maria of Montserrat, Patron Saint of Catalonia, is located.

Next, you will take a walking tour of the monastery surroundings. Enjoy the unparalleled views offered by this region, which was declared as a Natural Park in 1987. You will also discover the Holy Cave where the virgin is said to have appeared. The site has, since then, become an authentic center for pilgrimage and prayer. A musical treat will conclude your mystical Montserrat visit.
