Description

Explore Montserrat Mountain and Santa Maria Monastery on a guided tour and climb aboard the Montserrat cog-wheel train for panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes.

Your tour will begin by bus, on a journey from Barcelona up to Montserrat, 1,236m above sea level.

The rocks of Montserrat formed naturally as sand cemented together over the centuries. Legends talk about human and animal shapes in the rocks, which adds to the fantastical mystery around the mountains of Montserrat.

You will be able to admire Montserrat from every angle, thanks to the air-conditioned train with panoramic windows that will take you up to the monastery.

Once there, you can visit the monastery and its audiovisual exhibition on the creation of Montserrat and its history and taste typical liqueurs from the region.
