Topped by a Benedictine Monastery, Montserrat is an ideal half-day trip to spend a fun day in nature, just an hour away from Barcelona. With a distinguished history stretching back to the early Middle Ages, many Catalans think of themselves as a separate nation from the rest of Spain. This is a great opportunity to see why and enjoy a beautiful guided hike!

If you are visiting Barcelona before, during, or after your cruise, or simply in town on holiday, you must take advantage of this great opportunity to take the short trek to Montserrat. This 5.5-hour excursion is led by an English speaking, expert guide who will take you on a journey through history and nature. Upon meeting at a central location and utilizing safe, private transportation throughout, your experience begins in the upper part of Passeig de Gracia as you slowly become enveloped in the natural splendor of Montserrat, Catalonia’s most emblematic mountain.

On the way to the Monastery, you will admire the Massif of Montserrat, a spectacular multi-peaked rocky range packed of unique needle-shape formations. Upon arrival, you will explore the Monastery, which was founded in the 10th century and still functions to this day with over 150 monks. It is also well-known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta (the dark one), who is the patron saint of Catalonia. Your guide will bring history alive through their dynamic presentation of both the historical and cultural elements of this Monastery, dating back nearly a thousand years.

Following your time in the monastery, your ticket will allow you to board a funicular railway where you will observe the area’s fascinating flora and fauna. One of the best-specialized guides in Montserrat Natural Park will lead you on an hour long, relaxing trek through this splendid setting while spectacular views abound. Upon the completion of your excursion, you may further explore or return to your hotel or cruise ship in Barcelona at your leisure and own expense.

Located just a short one hour drive from Barcelona is one of Catalonia's best-kept secrets. Come and explore this historical and natural gem to create memories to last a lifetime. But, don’t forget your camera as you will not want to miss the spectacular vistas!

Note: Visiting the Morenata is not guaranteed (subject to availability and season), as there may be up to 2 hours queue.
