Visit the renowned Monserrat Monastery after a 1-hour trek in the beautiful Montserrat Natural Park and a funicular ride up the slope of Catalonia’s most famous mountain.

Montserrat Monastery & Hiking Tour

Board a spacious air-conditioned coach at 8:30 am in Barcelona’s city center and take a one-hour journey to the mountainside of the tallest and most famous rocky sierra in Catalunya: Montserrat Mountain. Literally meaning serrated in Catalan and standing 1,236 meters above sea level, its peaks are covered in sharp looking stones.

We'll also head to the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey and discover the details of this beautiful 10th-century Romanesque building. The Benedictine abbey houses the unique relic of Our Lady of Montserrat, patron saint of Catalonia.

Once you get to the feet of the impressive mountain, you'll head up to the Montserrat Natural Park via the Sant Joan funicular. Enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey hanging off the razor-sharp peaks as you make your way up. You'll then get to explore the stunning scenery of the park up close, as you hike up the slope (around an hour's trek) to reach the summit of Montserrat. Admire the bird's eye view of Barcelona beneath your feet!

Then, we'll make our way back down to the starting point, where we'll arrive around 2 pm.

Can we see the Escolania de Montserrat Choir?

The famous Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest boys' choir in Europe, performs from Monday to Friday.

However, the ability to attend the choir depends on availability on the day. If possible, you will have the opportunity to watch the choir, but it will always be subject to schedules and space in the venue.
