Montserrat Custom Tour
Located less than an hour from Barcelona, the Montserrat massif and natural park is an impressive natural sight. Montserrat has become a wonderful must-see, not only for the views it offers, but also thanks to being an important pilgrimage site. This renowned place, which is part of the “Camino de Santiago”, welcomes thousands of tourists and pilgrims every year seeking inner peace and being in contact with nature. Furthermore, the “Moreneta” (Virgin of Montserrat and patron saint of Catalonia), has become an attraction for most visitors. Both the Virgin and the mountain itself are recognised as icons of Catalan culture and identity.
Montserrat’s Monastery of Benedictine monks is still active, where the church holds daily mass with a choir sung by altar boys, and an art museum that houses an impressive collection of enormously artistic works.
Apart from being a monumental and heritage religious worship complex, the area itself also enjoys an enormous wealth of natural heritage. This is a totally flexible tour allowing you to choose which aspects of Montserrat you most wish to discover, from a walking tour through certain sections of the mountain, visiting the collection of the Montserrat art museum, or a visit to the Virgin and seeing one of the oldest children's choirs.
The duration of the visit to Montserrat can vary according to your interests and can be combined with another visit to Barcelona or vineyards in Designation of Origen areas close to Montserrat.
