Early Access Montserrat Half Day Tour from Barcelona

by Amigo Tours Duration 6h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$41

Embark on an early morning trip from Barcelona to Montserrat Monastery located on a sacred mountain not far outside of the city. Visit the monastery as well as the museum to learn about the rich cultural heritage of Catalonia. Then look at the Black Madonna kept inside the Royal Basilica.

Meet your friendly, bilingual guide in front of the Hard Rock Café located in Plaça Catalunya. After a warm greeting, set off inland towards Montserrat Monastery. An hour ride through the Catalonian countryside flashes by in no time and before long, you arrive at the monastery.

The first impression is always the most important, and this one won’t disappoint you. The monastery is built into the side of a mountain whose shape is quite distinct. Pause a moment to appreciate the jagged backdrop for this sacred place. Continue to the heart of the monastery where you have ample time to explore the complex’s many buildings. Learn about local culture and history inside of the museum and see the Black Madonna in the Royal Basilica.

The architecture, which combines Gothic and Renaissance styles, is well-designed and suits its surroundings perfectly. Don’t miss the chance to hear one of the oldest boys’ choirs in Europe—Escolania de Montserrat—before beginning the return trip to Barcelona.

It was an amazing tour with the beautiful view of Monserrat. The weather was nice and I was able to explore the site. To am so blessed that I have seen the Black Madonna and hopefully she will grant my petitions. Our tour guide , Martina, from Amigo Tours was outstanding. She spoke perfect English and was very patient with some of the group who came back late to the bus. Excellent !!!!

This was great, we got there before all the crowds and before the fog came so we got to see everything without line ups. The guide was great too and we had lots of free time on our own.
