  • Visit glorious Montserrat – one of the most sacred places in Spain
  • Spectacular scenery and stunning photo-opportunities at every turn
  • Option to upgrade and ascend Montserrat by cog-wheel train
  • See the major artistic and architectural treasures of Barcelona
  • Discover Gaudi′s stunning legacy

This day tour combines one of Spain’s most beautiful and sacred places with the stunning artistic and architectural heritage of Barcelona.

Drive through picturesque villages to the craggy peak of Montserrat, rising majestically to 4,051 feet (1,235 meters). Either drive up the mountain by coach or take the option to ascend by cog-wheel train. The train ride gives you spectacular views over Montserrat that cannot be seen any other way.

Visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, home of the much revered 12th-century carving of the La Moroneta, the Black Virgin.

Enjoy a panoramic tour of Barcelona taking in the artistic treasures of this magnificent city. Gaudi, one of the greatest innovators of his time, has left behind many treasures for discerning visitors to enjoy. These include Casa Batllo and La Pedrera – his famous apartment buildings and the whimsical Parc Guell, not to mention La Sagrada Familia (Holy Family) Cathedral, his unfinished masterpiece.

This action-packed tour is a superb introduction to Barcelona and a good option if you are short of time.

Itinerary

There are two options for your Montserrat & Gaudi's Barcelona tour. With the standard option you will ascend the Montserrat mountain by coach. Or you can upgrade and take the famous cog-wheel railway to the Montserrat pilgrimage site.

For excursion you will travel in a comfortable air-conditioned coach accompanied by a multilingual guide (or guides) speaking English French, Italian and Spanish.

The first part of the tour takes you from Barcelona to Montserrat, a scenic journey of about 50 minutes. Long before you reach Montserrat (4,051 feet/1,235 meters), you will see the jagged silhouette of the peak, and understand how it got its name (‘serrat’ means ‘serrated’). For the standard option you will drive through the Montserrat Natural Park and up to the Sanctuary, around 725m (2380 feet) above sea level.

If you take the upgrade option, you will ascend Montserrat mountain by cog-wheel train. The journey provides magnificent views over Montserrat which can only be seen from the train.

Whichever option you choose, you will arrive at the Sanctuary, where you visit the Royal Basilica and the Chapel of Our Lady of Montserrat. Inside the Chapel is the famous 12th century Romanesque carved wood statue of La Moreneta (the Black Virgin). This figure has made The Royal Basilica one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Spain.

Your tour also includes entrance to an interesting audiovisual exhibition (“Montserrat Portes Endins”) and the chance to taste four locally produced liquors.

On returning to Barcelona you will be taken to see the city’s magnificent architectural attractions. The tour starts along Paseo Gracia where you can see Gaudi's famous apartment buildings including Casa Batllo and La Pedrera.

You then have 30 minutes to explore Gaudi's bizarre Parc Guell, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue to the La Sagrada Familia Holy Family Cathedral, Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece and Barcelona's most famous landmark, where you will stop for another 30 minutes.

You will also visit Barcelona's famous Sta María del Mar, the only complete Gothic church in Catalonia. The tour ends near the Picasso Museum, which exhibits works from the blue and pink periods of the world-famous painter.

You can then choose whether to return to the start point in the coach or to visit the Picasso Museum and return by yourself. (Picasso Museum entrance not included).
