Depending on the option chosen at checkout, your experience begins with pickup from a designated meeting point in central Barcelona. Greet your guide and board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Montserrat. If you chose the ticket-only option, you’ll make your own way to the abbey for a self-guided tour.

On arrival, sail past the line that often forms outside of the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey and take a guided tour of the monastery. Visit La Moreneta (The Black Madonna), a 12th-century wooden carving, and admire the design of the sacristy and atrium. Plus, during a visit to the Museum of Montserrat, you’ll admire 13th- to 18th-century paintings by the likes of Berruguete, Caravaggio, El Greco, and Morales.

The tour concludes with drop-off back at your original departure point in Barcelona.

Tour had high points, but not enough

First the good points. The early access was well worth getting up early. The view from the monastery was spectacular, and the funicular and hike to St. Joan were great. We were able to see the Black Madonna with only a 1/2 hour wait. However,...More

Early Tour to Montserrat

EARLY. The ride was very comfortable - it takes about an hour to get to Montserrat and when we arrived there was a lot of fog (beautiful) that meant we couldn't see to the valley but it made for gorgeous pictures. By the time we...More

You can do it under your own steam but it depends how much time you have. We had limited time so found this tour helpful. Not sure what the entrance fee was as we paid an all inclusive fee. You have plenty of free time. You... More
