Set off on a 5-hour trip to Montserrat from Barcelona. When you get to the bottom of the holy mountain take a traditional cogwheel train ride to Montserrat Abbey, one of Spain’s most important religious sites.
Greet your English-speaking guide at the Estación del Norte in Barcelona, and sit back while you’re driven on an air-conditioned coach across some of the region’s most picturesque villages until you get to Monistrol de Montserrat. Upon arrival, you’ll take its famous cogwheel train up the holy mountain, where the Montserrat Abbey is perched. During the 15-minute ride up the 600 meters slope, marvel at the stunning scenery.
Once you get to Montserrat, meaning "mountain saw" in Catalan, discover the Basilica, which houses the beautiful twelfth-century ‘Virgen Moreneta’, Catalonia’s patron saint. For centuries, this temple was one of Spain’s most popular pilgrimage sites.
If you’re lucky, you can listen to La Escolanía, Europe’s oldest children’s choir singing in the Monastery.
This tour also includes a free admission to Montserrat’s Espai Audio Visual Museum.
At the end of the tour, you can enjoy a tasting of various typical liquors from Montserrat.
