Montserrat Mountain & Royal Basilica

Located in a natural park around 35 miles to the west of Barcelona, the mountains provide a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia, who is worshipped at the shrine in the monastery.

This memorable tour gives you the opportunity to enjoy wonderful and breathtaking views of the stunning Montserrat Mountains as well as visiting some of this historic area's highlights.

Starting with a comfortable coach trip - the mountains are just a short drive from , gaze in awe as the mountain rises 4,051 feet (1,236 meters) in front of you.

The rocks of Montserrat were formed by natural cement and exposure to centuries of wind and rain have combined to form strange forms leading to some imaginative names and legends!

Next, stop at the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th century Romanesque carving of Virgen Moreneta (the Black Virgin) and visit the Benedict sanctuary of Montserrat which was founded in 1025.

On some days the children's choir sings in the monastery and so you may be fortunate enough to catch one of their delightful performances.

There will be some chances to taste a selection of typical Montserrat liquors before enjoying some free time to take in an audiovisual exhibition about the history and creation of Montserrat.
