Overview
Religious landmarks are best explored in peace. However, the crowds that many attract make this impossible. Explore Montserrat monastery in tranquility on a hassle-free tour that includes a morning access pass to the abbey. Choose between just the transfer to the monastery, round-trip transfers and guided tour with tickets, or a package that includes transfers, a guided visit, and access to the museum.

What to Expect
Depending on the option chosen at checkout, your experience begins with pickup from a designated meeting point in central Barcelona. Greet your guide and board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Montserrat. If you chose the transfer-only option, purchase tickets at the abbey and take a self-guided tour. On arrival, sail past the line that often forms outside of the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey and take a guided tour of the monastery. Visit La Moreneta (The Black Madonna), a 12th-century wooden carving, and admire the design of the sacristy and atrium. Plus, during a visit to the Museum of Montserrat (if option selected) admire 13th- to 18th-century paintings by the likes of Berruguete, Caravaggio, El Greco, and Morales. The tour concludes with drop-off back at your original departure point in Barcelona.

This location is about an hour outside of Barcelona via the bus, the tour guide was informative and gave great advice on what things we should see. But gave us plenty of time to see everything. The sights alone are worth the trip there!
