Embark on a spiritual but also a quite remarkable trip to the Montserrat Monastery, 45km northwest of Barcelona. Hop on a comfortable coach which will take you to the rocky mountains of Catalonia where you'll be visiting the Benedictine Monastery Santa Maria de Montserrat. Get to explore the monastery and learn about the lives of the monks living in this sacred mountain, as well as their favorite saint, the Virgin of Montserrat. Visit Museu de Montserrat where you'll find a collection of ancient artifacts that range from Egyptian mummies to canvasses by Picasso. Witness some of the old paintings from the 13th-18th centuries by artists such as Dali, El Greco, Morales, and Caravaggio. You will have free time to explore the vicinity on your own, dine at the different restaurants, or perhaps have yourself some fine Spanish wine. This tour to this historic site will be a fun day filled with an appreciation for history and religion. It's something you should definitely see while visiting Barcelona.
