Mystical Basilica of Montserrat & spectacular views


The Monastery of Montserrat is a renowned shrine and home to many legends.
What makes a "must" is its unique topography of the surrounding mountains, rocks and cliffs.
The location is beautiful and dramatic, to say the least.

You will visit the 19th-century basilica with its lovely façade and the statue of the Black Virgin also called La Moreneta (the Brunette). Nowadays, she is still the Patroness of Catalonia.

You'll also be treated to a glorious performance of the Escolania, the Europe's oldest boy choir (if available)

A Recent Review of this tour

Great knowledge of history and knows how to share in a fun way. She is able to flex how much time we spent in different areas. When we had a party of 9. The max tour size was for 7 or 8, but she was able to get a larger mini bus for our group. Accommodating and excellent. Highly recommend.
