Description

On this 5 hours Montserrat Monastery 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.

Montserrat is the spiritual heart of Catalunya and home to the mythical 12th century Black Virgin La Moreneta statue, to an order of Benedictine monks and the oldest boys’ choir in Europe called “Escolania de Montserrat.

You will take a scenic drive all the way up to the monastery, passing by ancient villages and admiring the particular flora and fauna of the park. Once we reach our destination we will visit the Basilica of Montserrat and we will get deeper into the history of the Virgin of Montserrat known as “the Moreneta” patroness of Catalonia, which since the twelfth century attracts pilgrims from around the world .
