  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview Discover one of Spain’s most sacred sites, set in beautiful mountains about 1 hour’s drive from Barcelona.

    Drive through picturesque villages to the craggy peak of Montserrat, rising majestically from the plain to 4,051 feet (1,235 meters).

    At the top, visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, home of the much revered 12th-century carving of the La Moroneta, the Black Virgin. Learn the legends and stories surrounding this sacred place and enjoy the stunning panoramas.

    An excellent audio-visual display is included in your tour and, on some days, you may be lucky enough to hear the Montserrat monastery’s famous boys’ choir. The excursion also includes a chance to taste some delicious local liquors.
