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 an early-access pass to the abbey. Choose between just the priority admission ticket, or a package that includes round-trip transport and a guided visit of the monastery that guarantees to reveal information that you may otherwise have missed.
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 ticket-only option, you’ll make your own way to the abbey for 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, you’ll 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.

Tour had high points, but not enough

First the good points. The early access was well worth getting up early. The view from the monastery was spectacular, and the funicular and hike to St. Joan were great. We were able to see the Black Madonna with only a 1/2 hour wait. However,...More

Early Tour to Montserrat

EARLY. The ride was very comfortable - it takes about an hour to get to Montserrat and when we arrived there was a lot of fog (beautiful) that meant we couldn't see to the valley but it made for gorgeous pictures. By the time we...More

Great place to visit, a must when in Barcelona

You need to get to the Montserrat Monastery early as there is a lot to see. We went by train from Barcelona and then by cable cart, which had amazing views. You can buy the train and cable ticket combined at the main Barcelona train...More
