Private Tour to Montserrat with an Official Guide from Barcelona

Loading...

Montserrat is the spiritual heart of Catalunya. It is home to the mythical 12th-century Black Virgin La Moreneta statue, an order of Benedictine monks and the oldest boys’ choir in Europe. To start the Accessible Montserrat Monastery Tour we will pick you up from your hotel in Barcelona or any other agreed point in the city.

Arriving by car from Barcelona (1 h drive) you will take a scenic drive up to the monastery. That is to say, you will pass by ancient villages and admire the particular flora and fauna of the park. Once we reach our destination we will visit the Basilica of Montserrat. Moreover, we will get deeper into the history of the Virgin of Montserrat. She is known as “the Moreneta” patroness of Catalonia, which since the twelfth century attracts pilgrims from around the world. On weekdays we will also have the opportunity to hear one of the oldest and best-known boys choirs in Europe, the “Escolania de Montserrat”.
