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.
You'll meet your guide at the Estación del Norte in Barcelona and head further inland to take the famous Montserrat cogwheel train. During the 15-minute ride uphill to a height of almost 2,000 feet (600 metres), you'll look out at stunning scenery.
After admiring some incredible views, we'll arrive at the Montserrat Sanctuary. This place is well-known for its rocky surroundings and is considered a place of worship due to the miraculous apparition of the Virgin Mary in one of the mountain's caves.
In Montserrat, meaning "mountain saw" in Catalan, we'll visit 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.
As well as exploring the basilica's interior, we'll taste 4 different typical liquors from Montserrat. This tour also includes free admission to Montserrat’s Espai Audio Visual Museum.
After the guided tour, you'll have some free time to enjoy the scenery and visit the local farmers' market. We'll then finish return to the starting point in Barcelona and finish the tour.
