Description

Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime day trip to Montserrat from Barcelona and explore Catalonia's most famous mountain range. Take in panoramic views of the mountain scenery as you ride the cogwheel and discover the history of its medieval monastery. After a comfortable transfer from Barcelona, board the cogwheel train to the monastery. As you ascend the picturesque mountainside, admire views of the stunning multi-peaked range of Montserrat emerging above you. On arrival, embark on a guided tour of the historical center of the complex. Hear about the rich history of the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey, an 11th-century functioning monastery built on the mountain. Marvel at the ornate interior of the monastery with the included tickets. Then, enjoy free time to explore on your own. Book your time slot to visit the famous Black Madonna and see paintings by Picasso, El Greco, and Dali at the Montserrat Museum. You can also ride the funicular train up the side of the mountain for even better views. Travelers who booked the half-day tour option will return to Barcelona after the visit to Montserrat. If you choose the full-day tour option, you'll continue toward a beautiful boutique winery with mountain views. Savor traditional flavors with a light tapas or multi-course lunch at the winery (depending on the option selected). After, wander around the vineyards, learn about the wine-making process, and enjoy a wine-tasting session before traveling back to Barcelona.
