Full description

Discover the beautiful mountain monastery of Montserrat on a peaceful train ride away from the city. Enjoy the charms of the village hidden within this vast mountain range outside Barcelona. Your local host of choice will meet you at Plaça d'Espanya where you will jump on board the train to kick off 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 and Montserrat. 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. The 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. 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.

Great way to get around quickly and not figure things out on my own. Nice and short day trip that shows highlights of Montserrat in a few hours, but a thorough visit needs a few days. Adding even 3-4 more hours to the trip would have been better. Our guide was knowledgeable and professional, and great with tips and shortcuts.

A visit that could have been interesting, lack of historical information with regard to Montserrat. The super nice guide who however looked after our well-being.
