On this 8 hours Barcelona and Monserrat tour we’ll travel to some of Barcelonas most famous landmarks and to the famous mountain monastery of Montserrat.
In the first part of the day we will visit the most important spots of Barcelona. We will travel along the Passeig de Gràcia avenue, where we will see monumental facades with an abundance of unexpected details. We will then have the opportunity to visit Gaudí’s Park Güell, which houses some of the artist’s most original creations, admire the facade of the Sagrada Familia and visit Montjuïc mountain to see the Olympic Park and enjoy spectacular views over the city.
Next to our Barcelona and Monserrat tour is a stroll through the Gothic Quarter and the La Ribera neighborhood (Barcelona’s old town). We will learn about the history of Barcelona, venturing into the most important districts of the ancient medieval city and wandering around its narrow streets. The historical old town is full of life and spots rich with charm.
We will take a 40 minutes lunch break at the Gothic Quarter. Meals are not included and guests can choose from various lunch options.
In the second half of the day we will leave the city to visit the Benedictine Abbey of Montserrat. On this tour we will discover the magnificent beauty and rock formations of the UNESCO world heritage site Montserrat mountains, which are a stunning and movie like setting for a Basilica church and chapel perched on the mountainside at an altitude of 720m and with over 1000 years of dramatic history. Our Montserrat visit includes a scenic drive all the way up to the monastery. Then we guide you through the Basilica and see the Virgin of Montserrat.
