Full description

Take a day trip from Barcelona to visit Monserat. Take in the mountain views, visit the famous monastery, then head to a local farmhouse for a delicious dinner.

Begin in the upper part of Passeig de Gràcia. Then journey to the natural splendor of Montserrat, Catalonia’s most emblematic mountain topped by a Benedictine Monastery. Montserrat is an ideal trip to spend a day in nature, just a few kilometers away from Barcelona.

En route to the Monastery, admire the Massif of Montserrat, a multi-peaked rocky range packed with needle-shaped formations. Upon arrival, visit the Monastery, which was founded in the 10th century and still functions with 150 monks to this day. 

It famously hosts the dark figure of La Moreneta, who is the patron saint of Catalonia. Your guide will explain the Monastery's history, which dates back nearly a thousand years. After the visit, you will have free time to buy a souvenir and take pictures.

Next, visit a farmhouse with stunning views. Enjoy a delicious 3-course menu; consisting of salad, barbecued food (with vegetarian and halal options), and dessert. Following this adventurous day, return to the center of Barcelona by private transport.

Matteo was a great guide. After he shared his expertise, we had plenty of time to visit the church and surrounding area. The food - it is one of the best meals I've ever had. So good, so much food. The picture makes it look like a picnic... it's a feast at a 16th century farmhouse turned restaurant. The one negative I'd say is to be sure that you know you cannot take the St. Joan funicular on this tour (Matteo assured us other tours w his company did that). I did not check that detail before buying. This is ~ 2 hours at the monastery with an amazing lunch. I highly recommend it!

Lovely trip-I especially enjoyed the lunch. Our guide was helpful and answered all our questions-pretty funny too. We have about an hour and 20 minutes at the monastery, which was plenty for us. The guide showed you around the area and then let you roam at your own pace. The art museum was very nice too. Traveled in a comfortable ~20 person van.

Such a great way to visit Monserrat in all its beauty by way of small group with a confortable van. Our tour guide Mateo was awesome and so knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. He really pulled the group of 11 together and at the farmhouse lunch we all had a wonderful local experience with gorgeous food. The servers were so lovely too! Great experience from start to finish and great value for money! Thanks for a great day out!
