Montserrat Monastery and Natural Park Hiking Premium Small Group Tour from Barcelona
From US$81.89
Overview
Visiting Montserrat Monastery without a guide may involve glossing over the history and significance of this mountainside site. Ensure you experience the highlights of the Benedictine abbey on a small-group tour from Barcelona: seeing the famous statue and boys’ choir, riding the funicular cable car to a scenic viewpoint, and taking a nature walk in Montserrat Park. The tour includes transport and funicular tickets, so you can focus wholly on the sights.
What to Expect
Meet in central Barcelona and travel by deluxe Mercedes minivan to Montserrat, admiring the rugged scenery on route.

As you travel, hear about the mountainside Benectine abbey and its 12th-century wooden "La Moreneta" carving of the Virgin Mary, the "Black Madonna," that makes it one of Spain’s most important pilgrimage sites.

Tour the abbey, enjoy a performance of the boys’ choir, and see the revered statue as your guide sheds light on the monastery’s history.

Next, ascend the mountainside on the glass-roofed Sant Joan funicular train and admire the bird’s-eye views from the slopes over Catalonia below.

Then, drive on to Montserrat Natural Park, one of Catalonia’s most scenic natural reserves. Here, set off on a gentle guided nature walk to take in the stunning scenery and flora and fauna.

After appreciating the unspoilt landscapes and peace here, your tour finishes with a drop-off in central Barcelona.

Visit to Montserrat

Trip was good. Our guide with WeBarcelona was Uni. Positives were 1)a patient & helpful guide; 2)a small group which made it more personal. The primary negative was the lack of time to absorb the magnitude of the visit - too rushed.

Informative trip

Adrien was a very good, knowledgeable and friendly guide. I'm glad we went early in the morning because we got to avoid most of the crowds and the hot weather. Admittedly, I could have done with more time after the tour to explore the market...More

Montserrat was a perfect day away from the City

We took the half day hiking tour to Montserrat. It was amazing. We booked it online based on a friend's recommendation. The meeting place is on a street corner. This was awkward for maybe a minute because we were the only ones there and we...More

Beautiful day in Montserrat

It could not have been a more perfect day for a tour of Montserrat. From the top of the funicular we could see from the Pyrenees to the Med. Our guide Marc was full of interesting facts and offered options for our hike back to...More

I booked for myself initially and at the meeting I believe we were 10 or 12 people. Also, I booked using their airbnb which allowed me to see the availabilities.
