Overview

Enjoy the stunning scenery and world famous Benedictine Monastery of Montserrat, nestled into the hills outside Barcelona. Arrive before the crowds to visit the iconic "Black Madonna" and soak in the panoramic views. Back in Barcelona, finish your day at the most impressive flamenco venue in town: a XVII Century Gothic palace hosting some of the most talented singers and dancers. We include tickets to the show as well as a drink!

Know More about this tour

It surprises that, just one hour away from such a vibrant and hectic city, this gorgeous site offers rugged nature, stunning mountain views and a peaceful atmosphere, providing a fascinating experience of contrasts, as we get captured by its beauty. Although known as a mystical, spiritual place, Montserrat has plenty more to offer.

On our half day tour departing from the center of Barcelona, we make the most of our time by starting a little earlier than the other visitors: we timed the tour to offer you a seamless experience and to allow you to arrive before most other visitors. This precious time advantage allows you to enjoy a better experience and avoid the daily queues that form in front of the Benedictine Monastery and of the world famous Black Madonna statue.

Your transfer in a comfortable, air-conditioned bus will only last about one hour and during this time your guide will tell you all about the history about this fascinating site.

The sight of the surrounding nature is absolutely breathtaking; take it all in as you do a brief orientation tour on arrival, and as your guide takes you to the Monastery.Wonder at the majesty of the Basilica with its Gothic architecture.

See the famous Black Madonna, believed by some to have been carved in Jerusalem in the late 12th Century. This Romanesque statue, entirely made of wood, is linked to a mysterious legend, according to which the Benedictine monks could not move the statue to build the monastery and were therefore forced to build around it, which made it soon become a pilgrimage site.

During your free time, you can take an optional cable car ride among the stunning scenery and the bizarre rock formation, to better appreciate the breathtaking beauty of the area. Or perhaps you would like to spend some time learning more about the history of the site, visiting the interactive exhibition. If you are into art, there is even a museum of contemporary art, hosting masterpieces of artists such as Manet, Picasso and Dal.

Save a bit of time to savour the local specialties: from the herbal liquors to the local cheese and honey, these remote mountains produce a variety of excellent, genuine products you should definitely sample before heading back to the hustle and bustle of Barcelona!

In the evening, once you're back in Barcelona, make your day truly unforgettable with tickets to an authentic Flamenco Show. We have carefully selected the venue to provide you with a memorable experience: incredibly talented flamenco performers on an exceptional stage, inside a majestic Gothic Palace. Enjoy a complimentary drink while you soak in the charming and intimate atmosphere and tap your feet to the music and dance - a truly unique show that never fails to captivate!
