Full description
The experience starts in the upper part of Passeig de Gràcia, before journeying to experience the natural splendor of Montserrat. Catalonia’s most emblematic mountain. Topped by a Benedictine Monastery, Montserrat is an ideal half-day trip to spend a fun day in nature, just a few kilometers away from Barcelona.

On the way to the monastery, admire the Massif of Montserrat, a spectacular multi-peaked rocky range packed of unique needle-shape formations. Upon arrival, visit the monastery with over 70 monks that was founded in the 11th century and still functions to this day. It is well known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta, who is the patron saint of Catalonia. Your guide will bring history alive by explaining the history and ventures of this monastery dating back nearly a thousand years.

Next, board the Sant Joan Railway to observe the area’s fascinating flora and fauna following a trail with soft trekking with a specialized guide in Montserrat Natural Park.
