My husband and I took a day to visit this beautiful, history monastery in the mountains about 40 minutes from Barcelona. It's a beautiful spot. On the day we visited, it was quite foggy, and so outdoor panoramic views were not possible. The fog, however, lent an incredible quality to the atmosphere and the alleyways around the structure--a photographer's dream!... More

One of the must in your visit to Barcelona is a one day tour -though can be done in half day also- to the Montserrat mountain. A peaceful and relaxing visite to the monastery and the cathedral and also enjoy of the mountain and the great views.

Sandra was the best tour guide ever, she was so charismatic and well informed. The tour is worth every single penny. The views from the Monserrat mountains are breath taking and the wine tasting in the castle was amazing. Definitely would recommend.

Bus ride to Montserrat was smooth and our charming young guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She works with the Barcelona Guide Bureau which has an orange umbrella as its symbol. The views from the Monastery were breathtaking - a photographer's dream.

Confortable, bus and very knowledgeable guide, Sra.Dolores from Juliá Tours at Balmes St.close to Plaça Catalunya. Perhaps the full day tour is more relaxed but this was just very good. Nice sourroundings, fascinating climbing 1500 mts by railway at the edge of the serrated cliffs, therefore de name of Mont-Serrat...

I planned this tour as a chance to see some sights outside the city of Barcelona. We meet in the Plaza de Catalunya where we boarded a bus to drive for about an hour. The bus was comfortable enough. The guide told us about areas of the city as we passed through on our way out of town. And then... More

This is a very unique tour with the one of a kind rock formations and a beautiful Monkastery (yes I made that up) with views for miles on a clear day. The funicular is an engineering marvel as is the construction of the buildings so high in the sky.

It was a fairly panoramic ride by coach to the mountain, and Jose, the guide was so entertaining. We took the queues in our stride, and inside the basilica we saw everything was worth it! The short climb up to touch the Black Madonna was easy and the experience inspiring. On top of this we enjoyed the singing.
