What people are saying about Monistrol de Montserrat

Excellent tour, better than expected. The monastery, basilica and trails to the hermitages at Montserrat were viewed and described in plenty of detail with anecdotal stories and accurate historical accounts, paced just right, and never felt like a "canned" tour.

1 hour drive from city. Comfortable runners or boots are a must. Never seen mountain landscape like Montserrat before. Amazing. Come early as traffic was very heavy when we left around 2pm.

This hike was incredible! Our guide was really great and very knowledgeable as well. We highly recommend!

The monestry is an impressive that was built on the mountain several centuries ago.

Enjoyed the scenes of Montserrat. Thanks to our guide Sharon.
