A famous Catalan proverb says: “If you see the Monserrat and don’t feel a quiver in your body, it is just possible that you aren’t really alive…”
The Montserrat mountain, with its tooth-like peaks is a spectacular site which attracts pilgrims, tourists, photographers and mountain climbers.
Just a short drive from Barcelona we will be able to feast our eyes on the glorious sight of the Montserrat, but not before we invite you for coffee and local pastry – a fitting and pleasant way to start off.
The site boasts a Benedictine monastery with a very impressive church beside it. We will enter the church, and see the famous statue of the Black Madonna, Patron Saint of Catalonia. We will follow this with a ride by funicular to the higher parts of the mountain where we could walk among the uniquely shaped rocks and stop to admire the magnificent panoramic views.
This tour can be also combined with a wine tasting tour in the nearby Penedès region.
