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 cog-wheel train. 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 Moneta (known as the Black Virgin), the Montserrat Virgin. As you make your way through the location, the atmosphere is made perfect by the harmonies from L'Escolania children's choir, who sing with the sanctuary prayers and sacred music. 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.

    This trip is the worst experience for my 10 days honeymoon time in Spain, which the Julia Travel was selling fake stamp to us. It really made me a very bad image to the creditworthiness of Klook and image of Spain. Sincerely wish Klook to review its cooperation with Julia Travel in Barcelona.

    The tour was on time. The guide was very interesting and professional. The view up the hill was stunning. A perfect half day tour.
  • R.B. 21 Feb 2018
    The site was simply breathtaking and it's well worth a visit even in the wintertime. The mountains were majestic and luckily it wasn't peak tourist season so the place was not crawling with tourists and I was able to enjoy it in relative peace and quiet. This was also organized by Julia Tours (and the 3rd tour I've taken with this co spanning from Madrid to Barcelona) so the quality is somewhat guaranteed. I would do this tour again if I had the chance to visit Spain again.

    Tour guide was good! Kinda disappointed that we have shorter time to walk about. They skipped the boy choir which was very saddening.. this place is beautiful on a good weather~
  • elden hutton   14 Jul 2017

  • Yuk Shan Zita 17 Apr 2017
    The tour guide is very friendly and nice. The trip is worth to join!!
  • Chuen Wing 30 Apr 2018
    The scenery is beautiful, but the time is too short. The tour guide introduces some features. With only one hour of free activity, it took 40 minutes to line up to see the icon. The net time has been to visit the museum and see the choir film soon.
