Full description

Board a tour bus to the magical mountain of Montserrat. Famous for its peculiar morphology, its name comes from the Catalan words Mont (mountain) and Serrat (serrated). Famous for its rocky geography, Montserrat was declared a National Park in 1987 to protect its natural and cultural wealth. 

Follow your local guide through the site and learn about the history and architectural style of the Monastery. Fall in love with the Gothic and Renaissance details of the basilica and sanctuary.

Learn about the legend of the apparition of the Madonna and Child in the cave of Santa Cova. The figure is popularly known as La Moreneta (The Black Madonna) as a result of a varnish reaction. After the guided tour, you will be given about 3 hours of free time. 

Then, you can shop for locally produced treats, have lunch, listen to one of the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe (subject to their schedule), visit the audiovisual exhibition, the museum (optional), or taste the finest liquors made in the region.
