The Santuary of Montserrat and its Mountain (Natural reserve) with a private licensed guide

The Sanctuary of the Virgin of Montserrat is more than a place of worship; it has always symbolized the identity of the Catalan people. First at all we will visit the Sanctuary, will understand what it represents for Catalan people, will learn about the Benedictine monks, and it's a must to greet the Black Madonna, Female Patroness Saint of Catalonia.
But, when we go up to the mountain is not only for spiritual reasons, but to be in contact with the Natural Reserve as well. We will reach the very top of the mountain by funicular to go hiking following an easy path to see the magnificent views: the Pyrenees Mountains (border with France) and to admirer the peculiar shapes of Montserrat, reason of its name. (If hiking is not for you, we can visit the museum of Art; to stop for a coffee; or to taste the typical crafts at the Farmers' market).
Finally we will listen the boys' choir (the oldest one in Europe).
On our return journey, we can do part of our trip taken the cable car or the rack railway.


Basilica of Montserrat (it is an hour driving time away from Barcelona. I will take advantage of our trip to introduce Catalonia, our economy, history and Montserrat)
Funicular to go hiking (recommended) / or Art museum / or to taste the typical crafts at the Farmers' market.
To listen the boys' choir of Montserrat.
Possibility to take the Cable Car or Rack Railway on our return journey.

The price is calculated considering my private car as a transport (max. capacity 4 + me). But I can offer other kind of vehicles.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at your hotel/apartment; at the cruise ship terminal or wherever we agree (as long as it is in Barcelona).

It's not possible to see the boys' choir on Saturdays; neither in their summer holydays (from Jun 25th to Aug 21st 2016 - both included); or in Christmas (from Dec 26th until Jan 9th), but it doesn't prevent us to do this tour.


My private car (KIA Sorento - max capacity 4 adults + 2 children plus me). Please see the pictures in the picture section of this tour.

If you prefer a Chauffeured Mercedes E or Viano (capacity up to 6 tourist + 1 tour guide + 1 driver), the total cost of the excursion would be 905€, instead 589€ (please ask me how to book this option).
Note: other bigger vehicles are possible.
