Discover the catalan landscapes with a private guide!


Montserrat is a Natural Park that held the venerated Lady of Montserrat, the patron saint of the region of Catalunya, called popularly "La Moreneta"or Black Madonna.
Montserrat means serrated mountain, its, history, culture and religion, an unique landscape with impressive mountains, rounded peaks and massive rocks, with wonderful views. It's a paradise for active people, climbing, hiking and exploring caves. It is also a Benedictine Monastery where still there is the oldest boys choir school in Europe called "Escolania". About 80 monks share the experience to live there with about 50 boys on a high of 2. 300 feet above the sea level. The Monastery and the Basilica are one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Europe. It is situated 30 miles away from Barcelona city; we will reach the place by private car/van and visit the wonderful landscapes. If you are an early bird we can enjoy a quite visit of the Virgin Shrine.

NOTE: The Monastery is private so visitors are not allowed. I suggest to start early.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our family of seven, ages 40-74, took this trip with Olga, and we were very grateful to be with her. Her advice on timing helped us avoid most of the extensive crowds. She kept us on schedule while being sure we had plenty of time for reflection and prayer. We might have missed the phenomenal museum and appreciated her extensive knowledge of the priceless works. Included roomy and comfortable can accommodations. It was a perfect and memorable trip.
