What To Expect

Very rarely does anyone get the opportunity to experience such an enchanting location as Montserrat. If you're looking for a truly grand sanctuary of picturesque views, the ambiance of hauntingly beautiful music by choir, and an uplifting experience, this tour through a monastery of Montserrat will answer that need. Transported via air-conditioned coach, you'll be able to step into an old monastery, whose monks craft local liquors for you to taste. If you happen to take the afternoon tour, you'd also be able to soak up the scenery and the ambiance of the location via a rack railway. A multilingual guide will be with you every step of the way, explaining the monastery's history and the significance of this location. You'll be able to marvel at the mountain's fascinating rock formations that take the form of animals or even people. And when you walk into the Basilica de Montserrat, you'll be able to pay respects to the patron saint of Catalonia, La Moreneta (known as the Black Virgin), the Montserrat Virgin. There are few places in the world where such a peaceful sanctuary can be found along with breathtaking scenic mountain views. A trip to Montserrat shouldn't be missed.

    Montserrat was indeed beautiful but the tour seemed a little rushed. Expected to see more and have more time up the mountain. Was also disappointed that the cog wheel train was not included.
  • Changtai 5 Dec 2018
    nice place to be up among the mountains. cool place but nothing much to see to be honest. some breathtaking views make it worthwhile.
  • Khai Cheng 30 Nov 2018
    Tour was ok. We were assigned the dual language tour (spanish and English). we would prefer just solely English tour as it is quite a waste of time to also listen to a repeat of the tour in another language. Actual time spent there is short after taking into account the travelling time.
  • Su-Ling Sharon 30 Nov 2018
    We were pleasantly surprised when the tour agency - Julia Travel - allowed us to change the date of this tour due to rainy weather in Montserrat. As such, we were able to enjoy clear skies in the mountains on the day we went. Lovely church and surroundings. A must go when in Barcelona.
  • Xueling 26 Nov 2018
    Guide was very helpful and even thou we were stuck in Barcelona city due to the traffic thus our stay in Montserrat was shortened, he kept apologising. Didn’t managed to go up to the cross but we have enough time to visit the monastery.
  • maria theresa 23 Nov 2018
    first time to experience this..nice places..amazing mountains and i could possibly refer this locations to my friends!!
  • Jun Hau 11 Nov 2018
    The registration was easy and smooth. The tour is good and easy. There's about 1 hour free and easy time, and think that is generally enough.
  • Yim Theresa 11 Nov 2018
    The tour is fantastic and worth to join. If you have never been to Barcelona before, this tour is good choice for going up to Montserrat. The only down side was not too much free time for us as rushing to catach the bus for departure.
  • donghyun 4 Nov 2018
    kind and careful guide, it was nice trip
  • YIK 3 Nov 2018
    The half day trip is suitable for family without a whole lot of walking. The tour guide was very considerate and helped direct us to take minimize all the stairs since we were traveling with a three year old. It's very beautiful up there and is worthwhile to see in person. But the weather changed that day and became quite cold. Good that it didn't rain.
