Full description
The Montserrat massif is oft considered Catalonia's most famous mountain range. Its silhouette evokes the toothed blade of a saw, thus explaining its name, translated to "jagged mountain." At the top of the mountain is a monastery, inside which the image of the Mare de Déu de Montserrat (Virgin of Montserrat) is venerated. Widely and affectionately known as La Moreneta (the little dark-skinned one), she has been the patron saint of Catalonia since 1881.

Discover Montserrat in a totally unique way on the only tour that takes you on an exclusive guided visit of l’Escolania (boys’ choir school), where the boys live and study. They are the heart of Montserrat. Most days (subject to Escolania’s timetable), you will hear them sing and fill the atmosphere that surrounds the magic mountain.

In the Gaudí's Colònia Güell, get to know the best-kept secret of Gaudí: the crypt at Colònia Güell, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005. It is the "laboratory," where Gaudí experimented with almost all his architectural innovations. It is also part of the Colonia Güell, a modernist industrial village renowned for its integrated urban design, which was groundbreaking at the time it was built.

Enjoy an orientation tour in Montserrat and a guided tour in Gaudí Crypt – Colonia Güell.
