Make the most of a trip to Montserrat by combining a monastery tour with a horseback ride on this small-group tour from Barcelona, all without having to arrange your own transport. See the monastery’s highlights and learn about its history before descending by cable car and trekking on horseback through the mountain-framed countryside. Admission, transport, and horse ride are included, so you can simply enjoy the history and scenery.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Barcelona and settle inside a climate-controlled vehicle destined for Montserrat, a Benedictine monastery located on Montserrat mountain.
En route, admire the mountain’s needle-shaped peaks and hear how the monastery, founded in the 10th century, still functions with more than 150 monks. Hear, too, about its revered La Moreneta (little dark one), a wooden carving of the Virgin Mary that draws flocks of pilgrims.
On arrival, see the abbey’s highlights, including the basilica and its statue, and learn about their history. Then, enjoy a scenic cable car ride down the mountain.
Finally, set off behind a guide on a countryside horseback ride. Soak in the stunning mountain scenery as you cross fields and woods, and ride at a pace suitable for all skill levels.
Your trip then finishes at the original Barcelona starting point.
