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). 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.


  • For your Montserrat excursion, you will travel in a comfortable air-conditioned coach from Barcelona accompanied by a bilingual guide, proficient in English and German. Long before you reach Montserrat, you will see the mountains which rises majestically to 4,051 feet (1,236 meter). The Rocks of Montserrat formed by natural cement of sand during the century affected by the wind and rain shaped the mountain with strange and varied forms. The popular imagination has seen human or animal shape in some of these peaks, giving them names and inventing legends to explain their fantastic origins. Upon your arrival at Montserrat, you will visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th century Romanesque carving of Virgen Moreneta, the Black Virgin. The Benedict sanctuary of the Virgin Mary of Montserrat has been founded at 1025 and provides a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia who is enshrined in the monastery's Royal Basilica. Moving forward, you will head back to Barcelona and see the works of the famous architect Antoni Gaudi in the city during a walking tour. Stroll past the richly and symbolically decorated Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s unfinished masterpiece. The large Romanian church has astonishing towers which reach up to 70 meters. Next, you will visit Gaudi's unconventional park complex, the Parc Guell which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Keep an eye on your watch as it's easy to get lost in the whimsical design of this bizarre but compelling public park. Your tour will end at Paseo de Gracia, near Casa Batlló.
