Description
Start your half day trip from Barcelona to the majestic mountain of Montserrat which rises to 4,051 feet. Montserrat Mountains were made by natural cement of sand during the centuries. The wind and rain formed the mountain into weird and varied forms.

You get an opportunity to explore the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th century Roman carving of Verge Moreneta (the Black Madonna). You can see this statue from distance. The Benedict sanctuary of Montserrat was founded in 1025 AD. You will have some free time to explore the audiovisual exhibition about the history and creation of Montserrat. And taste traditional liquor of Montserrat. It is handmade by the monks of the monastery.

Later, a 15 minute ride of Cog wheel train will take you up to the middle of the Monastery. Enjoy spectacular views of the Mountain and Monastery from the panoramic windows of the train. This train is wheel chair friendly.

The Escolania of Montserrat is one of the oldest boys’ choirs in Europe. It has been active since 14th Century. You might be lucky to catch them performing live! Their performance is subjected to the school calendar and special events of the choir and monastery.
