Private Tour with MiniVan.
Montserrat, the Natural Park is a multi-peaked mountain shaped by the wind and rain and that is where it's name comes from, as it looks like a saw, the serrated mountain.
Almost to the top we find Santa Maria de Montserrat, the monastery, Catalonia's most important religious retreat. Inside the Basilica we can visit the Virgin of Montserrat (the black virgin), is Catalonia's Virgin.
Montserrat is an inspiration for Gaudi than he adpats in Casa Batllo and La Pedrera.
Montserrat is about one hour drive, where we will see all the growing towns on Barcelona's outskirts, where many Barcelonias have move to live.
Once we reach the bottom of the mountain we will drive from the back to the front, to see a great scenery drive of the Mountain.
When we reach the Parking, we will walk to one of the best birdpoint views of the region about 750 meter high from the sea side level and and overall look of the area, then we will pass by a local stores where you can sample local food like cheese, liquores, figcakes, membrillo (Quince), etc.
We will then visit the Monastery and the Basilica.
Back to Barcelona.
