Description

After a half-hour drive in an air-conditioned minivan, you will arrive at Montserrat. Start your day by visiting the Benedictine Abbey and discover its amazing history. Montserrat literally means “sawed mountain” in Catalan, and it is called this due to its multi-peaked rocky range. It is well-known as the site of the Benedictine Abbey. Once you have visited the abbey, get ready to start hiking from the monastery. Follow a beautiful path around the needle formations of the mountain and pass by many natural viewpoints that offer awesome views over the abbey and the forests. Continue until the highest point of the mountain, from where you will have breathtaking 360-degree views over the multi-peaked rocky range. On a clear day, you will be able to see the Pyrenees and Mallorca island. After admiring great landscapes, taking some pictures and taste a selection of traditional Catalan snacks. Next, start descending through a shady path between the needle formations and forests. Head back to the Abbey to enjoy some free time and wander around the farmers market.
