    Scenic Ride

    While you're enjoying the comfortable ride, your guide will start telling the story of this magical place in the clouds ahead of you. Montserrat has been considered a place of high spiritual importance by the locals for many centuries.

    As you hear more about it, we will be heading higher above and further away from Barcelona and the sea, providing you with a stunning view from the window of your bus. Before you know it, we will arrive at our destination.

    Place Above the clouds on the Cogwheel

    You arrive by bus to the little village of Monistrol de Montserrat. From there you will take the " Cremallera de Montserrat" a cogwheel train above the clouds to the monastery. Enjoy majestic views as you climb the mountain into the clouds.

    As soon as you arrive, you will feel the magic in the air surrounding this wonderful spot. Your guide will walk over with you to the monastery, explaining the history of the shrine. Your guide will also tell you where to go for a hike, where to find the best views and which local products to look for at the market. 

    Sanctuary of our Lady of Montserrat

    Your first stop will be a visit to the 11th-century monastery dedicated to Our Lady of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia. The monastery features a statue of the Virgin Mary which, according to legend, surfaced nearby during the 9th century.

    Some accounts claim that the statue may even be older. The locals refer to it as the Moreneta or the "little dark one." 

    Hike to the top

    After your visit to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montserrat, you'll have an hour of free time to explore the area before reuniting with the group and your guide and going to the winery. We recommend hiking over to Creus de Sant Miquel for a fantastic view of the monastery and the surrounding area.

    Local Market

    Montserrat is home to a splendid market that sells delicious local produce every day, so make sure to explore this local gem after your hike! Your guide will let you know what the typical delicacies of the area are. You will have the chance to purchase local cheeses, cured meats, pastries and more. Enjoy it there or bring some home with you!

    Tapas & Wine

    After departing Montserrat,  we will then stop at an amazing winery for an unbelievable experience. You will taste excellent local wines and traditional, Catalonian tapas.

    Enjoy the delicious food and drink at this stunning property that has been making authentic wines for centuries. On the way back to Barcelona you will have another chance to witness the stunning scenery as we descend from the mountain down towards the city.
