Great value for money and time ... a friendly and informative host who provided numerous options for the free time to explore. There was so much to do and see and just not enough time. We are very keen to return and see more!!

Through this tour you will explore la Basilica and the Sanctuary. What you will see is just discovering one of the most spectacular landscapes of Catalonia and cradle of the Catalan culture.

Just slightly over an hour by train from Barcelona, you can reach Montserrat by the funicular or by cable car. Of course you can also drive up there. The walking trials are amazing and the views from Montserrat are absolutely amazing.

There are a few places you can sit once you are up there besides in the church... there is also a restaurant/snack shop that is nice to have a cool drink in or something light to eat.
