What To Expect

Montana de Montserrat
The Rocky Massif of Montserrat has been declared as Natural Park in 1987, and characterised by the rounded shape of its peaks. This incredible 4000-foot wonder is easily recognizable by its ''serrated'' top from which it got his name.

Once you reach the monastery, you have plenty of options and your guide will always adjust to your interests. We invite you to take an easy walk of around 30 min to enjoy one of the most astonishing views of the natural park, but if you wish you can also decide to enjoy other activities that the mountain offers.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Abadia de Montserrat
Visit the Basilica of Montserrat, house of the serene image of the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia, a poly chrome Romanesque carving dating from the 12th century.

The legend says that in the year 880 some shepherd boys found a statue of the black madonna, the "Moreneta", in a grotto. A chapel was built on this site that soon became a place of pilgrimage.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Funicular de Sant Joan
Decide with your small group of 8 pax if you want to enjoy a ride in the rack railway that will bring you at the top of the holy mountain. Enjoy astonishing views along the way.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Sant Jeroni
Reach the peak of the holy mountain to enjoy a bird's eye view of the entire Montserrat Monastery and of the natural park. On clear days, you will enjoy uninterrupted views of the whole of Catalunya.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Aeri de Montserrat
If you skipped the funicular, you can enjoy the cable car, a breathtaking journey over the Llobregat River and Valley, up the mountain and right up to Montserrat Monastery.

The cable car first started running in 1930. It travels at a speed of 5 metres per second and at a gradient of up to 45%.

This is a trip that is not for the faint heart - you will be travelling 1350 metres up the mountain in a small hanging car! However, if you are not afraid of heights, you will be in for a really memorable and rewarding experience.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Montserrat Museum
If you wish, you can also decide to visit the Montserrat museum. It has an important section of early paintings, spanning the 13th to the 18th centuries, with works by El Greco, Caravaggio as well as a large collection of Catalan paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries that includes major names such as Fortuny, Rusiñol, Casas, Picasso and Dalí but also of French impressionism such as Chagall, Braque, Le Corbusier, Miró, Dalí and Picasso.

Montserrat was beautiful on its own, but our guy, Eduard, added a new dimension to our understanding of it. He made it a personal and spiritual experience as well as making it fun. It felt like he was an old friend showing us a place he loves. I highly recommend this tour
Remarkable tour of Montserrat!

Our tour guide Liana was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and interesting. She had a fantastic sense of humor and went out of her way to make our visit the best it could be. We are so happy to have had this experience with Liana.

We had a wonderful time on this tour. Marcel was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and helpful. The area is beautiful, as are the monastery and church. You have sufficient time to look around on your own. We spent it at he small art museum, which is well worth seeing.
