What you can expect

Looking to discover Montserrat? Or would you like to go on a day trip to the surroundings of Barcelona? This private day trip is just what you've been looking for!

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!

Your local host of choice will meet you at Plaça d'Espanya where you will jump on board of the train to kick of your day trip with a comfortable ride through the beautiful Catalan landscape. Along the way, your host will 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 unique ride up the mountain by a cremallera, a special train 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!

First stop in Montserrat will be the local farmers market to see the hustle & bustle of the vendors in the morning. Enjoy a delicious cheese tasting at one of the artisans 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.

Your last stop to end your magical day in Montserrat will be in the so-called 'Holy Cave'. This shrine has been built on a remarkable location to hide it from the Moorish invaders and not everyone knows how to find it!

If there's anything you'd like to change to the tour, please feel free to contact your favourite host. The tour can always be 100% personalized for you!
