Montserrat Monastery and Natural Park Hiking Premium Small Group Tour from Barcelona
Visiting Montserrat Monastery without a guide may involve glossing over the history and significance of this mountainside site. Ensure you experience the highlights of the Benedictine abbey on a small-group tour from Barcelona: seeing the famous statue and boys’ choir, riding the funicular cable car to a scenic viewpoint, and taking a nature walk in Montserrat Park. The tour includes transport and funicular tickets, so you can focus wholly on the sights.
What to Expect
Meet in central Barcelona and travel by deluxe Mercedes minivan to Montserrat, admiring the rugged scenery on route.

As you travel, hear about the mountainside Benectine abbey and its 12th-century wooden "La Moreneta" carving of the Virgin Mary, the "Black Madonna," that makes it one of Spain’s most important pilgrimage sites.

Tour the abbey, enjoy a performance of the boys’ choir, and see the revered statue as your guide sheds light on the monastery’s history.

Next, ascend the mountainside on the glass-roofed Sant Joan funicular train and admire the bird’s-eye views from the slopes over Catalonia below.

Then, drive on to Montserrat Natural Park, one of Catalonia’s most scenic natural reserves. Here, set off on a gentle guided nature walk to take in the stunning scenery and flora and fauna.

After appreciating the unspoilt landscapes and peace here, your tour finishes with a drop-off in central Barcelona.

Loved Flavio and Montserrat

Great tour. Perfect mix of information and downtime. Flavio was right on and an excellent companion on our beautiful hike. Besides being a nice guy, Flavio was articulate and knowdelgeable about the hike and monastery.

Monastery to view

This is a beautiful monastery with amazing veiws. Not for the less able bodied poeple, from the carpark you have a 300 meter treck uphill and it's not a gentle slope.

This was a very interesting tour with an excellent guide, who was knowledgeable and articulate. The group was small enough so that everyone felt part of the group.

I cannot comment on prices as they are always subject to change I.e. high season. There was no food provided on our tour.
