What you'll do

After 45 minutes drive on a AC Minivan, we will arrive to Montserrat. We will start the day visiting the Benedictine abbey before the crowds arrive. Will discover its amazing history and we will tell about some of the legends happening here. “Montserrat” literally means “sawed mountain” in Catalan because of its multi-peaked rocky range. It is well known as the site of the Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat which hosts the famous Black Madonna “La Moreneta”. We will get ready and start hiking from the monastery following a beautiful path that goes around the peaks of the mountain. As you pass by, the many natural viewpoints will offer awesome views of the abbey and the forests around. We will continue until one of my favourite spots, from where we will have breathtaking views of 360 degrees over the multi-peaked rocky range and in clear days we would be able to see the Pyrenees. After admiring those great landscapes taking some pictures and trying some typical Catalan snacks (please bring your own sandwich for lunch) we will start descending through a shady path between the needle formations and forests of the mountain that will bring us back to the Abbey where we will some free time for visiting the farmers market, relaxing or hear the famous Escolania de Montserrat boys choir sing (on working days from Monday to Friday, subject to Basilica capacity.
