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 see the astonishing stained glass and the Virgin of Montserrat "La Moreneta" (the black virgin), is Catalonia's Virgin.

Montserrat is an inspiration for Gaudi than he adapts in Casa Batlló and La Pedrera.

Note:

If you like to take the funicular and hike in the Mountain please let me know and I will customize a tour for you with more time.

If you would like a less crowded ambient book this tour for the afternoon.

Itinerary

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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our 4-hour Montserrat tour with Francisco was a wonderful end to a great trip. He picked us up as scheduled and we proceeded to the mountain for a beautiful scenic drive to the top. He is very well informed and made the tour not only interesting, but fun. We were moved expertly through the crowds to the most important sites thus making the best use of our time. Francisco is also an excellent photographer and we were delighted that he later emailed wonderful photos he had taken of us on our tour.
