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 adapts in Sagrada Familia, 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our group was fortunate to have booked three tours with Francisco. This was the first - a memorable visit to an amazing location. Francisco navigated us with great skill through an extremely busy day at Monserrat . He was very knowledgeable and a delight to be with. He not only provided us with a since of history and lead us to fabulous views, but he also provided us with terrific pictures of our time there. I would also say that our lunch near Francisco's home was one of the most memorable meals we had.
