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.

    Good trip to Montserrat by cog-wheel train. Well explained by english guide. Would book other tours via Klook again
  • Jen Jen 8 Aug 2018
    Convenient way to travel directly to Monserrat. Clean bus with a scenic view all the way up to the mountains.
  • Yen Ping Karen 24 Jul 2018
    Nice place to visit. Better to do a whole day tour with more time at Montserrat. Choir boys on vacations in July and Aug so didn't to hear them.
  • Sin Hang 11 Jul 2018
    very nice trip with professional tour guide. We enjoyed the trip very much.
  • Tong 26 Jun 2018
    The tour guide is so professional and caring, the coach is clean. The entire trip is perfect, though a bit rush as you will only have 3 hrs there.
  • Warner 28 May 2018
    Must See , Great Landscape and interesting sites .
  • Ramanathan 23 May 2018
    An extremely professional tour be there a little early as they validate your voucher and exchange them for tickets at the Julia Tours office ( which is the pick up point ). We took an afternoon tour , that starts at 3:00 PM and reached back at 7:30 PM, it’s about an hours journey to the train station ! The cog wheel train is a modern one .. and takes about 15 mins to go the top. Please keep in mind the afternoon tour does not stay long enough to listen to the boys choir ! If you want to hear them, you need to take the morning tour! Once on top you get a little bit more than an hour to look around and spend time ! But it’s not enough if you are looking to do the close up visit of the Black Madonna ( as there were long queues when we went) , funicular train, audio visual show, visit to the cross and a bit of shopping .. we just saw the Madonna from the church and then went on the liquor tasting and some shopping ! The journey back is down the curvy mountains with scenic views ..the bus driver was excellent and came down very gently ! Would recommend this tour if you have an extra day after seeing all of Barcelona or would like to visit for religious purposes !

    We really enjoyed the trip to Montserrat. It was a good trip, the guide was so active and always happy. He gave us a lot of information about the location. I would recommend this trip to everyone. Thanks Klook for this beautiful trip. You made my day so beautiful.
  • HOI KEI 28 Mar 2018
    The tour was on time. The guide was very interesting and professional. The view up the hill was stunning. A perfect half day tour.
  • Roberta Becky 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.
