Summary of The Day: A day tour from Barcelona to Montserrat is a must for the majority of visitors to Barcelona. It's probably the one place that they have heard all about before they arrive.
The advantage of taking one of our small group day tours from Barcelona is that we can avoid the crowds and stay well clear of the other larger tour operators.
Our day starts at 8:30am or 1:45pm from our office opposite the Palau de la Musica building. From here, the journey to Montserrat takes us about an hour or so.
One of the main reasons people book with us is that they want the intimacy of a small group, but like to have somebody there to explain things.
Keeping to our philosophy of giving you plenty of free time to explore on your own, but guiding you in the right direction, the first thing we do on arrival is explain the various options.
A visit to the sanctuary where the Moreneta is housed is a must.
The sanctuary has been in use for almost 1000 years for those pilgrims and other visitors who have climbed this spectacular mountain.
You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the fascinating Museum of Montserrat, with its five collections, ranging from Archaeology from the Biblical East to Modern Painting and Sculpture (admission not included).
Besides these cultural possibilities, there are numerous walks around Montserrat, ranging from easy strolls to serious hikes. Each trail offers a different perspective on the stunning views over the surrounding landscape, many of which are peppered with small chapels and hermitages.
You'll easily find a route to suit your taste and energy levels. But whether they're fairly strenuous treks or gentle walks, they all give you fantastic views to marvel at the unspoiled beauty of this protected natural park.
If you'd rather not walk at all, then another option is to take one of the two rack railways, or the cable car, offering yet more views of the area.
Depending on whether you have taken the morning or afternoon option, you will arrive back in Barcelona at around 2:00pm or 7:00pm, repsectively.
