This tour is the easiest way to visit Montserrat! Spectacular mountain and views, ancient monastery, holy shrine - an incomparable place not to be missed.

  • The Mountain


  • Montserrat is a massive rock over 4000 feet high, visible for miles, with weird shapes and rounded peaks that jut into the sky; there are paths, stairs, caves, chapels and hermitages scattered over the mountain, extraordinary landscapes and wonderful views. No wonder the whole mountain is also a Natural Park.

  • The Monastery & Black Madonna


  • The 1000 year old Benedictine monastery is perched half way up the mountain and sheltered by its peaks. There is a basilica with the Chapel of Our Lady of Montserrat known as La Moreneta, the patron saint of Catalonia, and a presence strongly felt and revered. The community of monks also runs a boys’ school devoted to the study of music.

  • The Sanctuary of Montserrat


  • Surrounding the Monastery there are plenty of things to do, here are some top suggestions:

    - Best place for pictures, with some outstanding views of both Montserrat and the surrounding plains
    - Market stalls selling local goods like honey and Mato (fresh cheese)
    - The Museum of Montserrat has an extensive collection with paintings by Dali, Picasso, El Greco and even treasures from ancient Egypt!
    - Restaurants and shops for anyone looking for souvenirs
    - Funicular railway to Sant Joan chapel.

    Tips:
    At the end of the tour we return to Placa Catalunya.

    I am handicapped and use a collapsible wheel chair. I would only need to get off the bus to use a restroom, but I Heard this is a beautiful ride.
    Would I be able to do this? My husband is fine.
    I might need a small step to get on the bus.

    Hope this will work out for me.
    Thank you.
