The monastery of Montserrat is hidden between a beautiful mountain range, just one peaceful train-ride away from the city. Ask any local and they will tell you how much they adore this magnificent place!

The local insider of choice will meet you at Plaça d'Espanya where you will jump on board of the train to kick off your day trip with a comfortable ride through the beautiful Catalan landscape. Along the way, your local friend can already share tons of interesting facts with you about Barcelona, Montserrat and of course your itinerary for the day.

Upon arrival in Montserrat, you'll enjoy a scenic ride up the mountain by cable-car that goes straight through the mountain range. The views are absolutely stunning and it's the best means of transportation to get to Montserrat comfortably and with the best view!

There's time to enjoy the local atmosphere before you continue for an easy-going hike to a viewing point on top of Sant Miquel. The view up there is absolutely stunning and you can gaze straight across the Catalonian landscape!

After a short break to relax and enjoy the view, you'll continue your way to the church of the monastery of Montserrat: the Santa Maria de Montserrat. Learn all about the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia to whom the church has been dedicated.
