Day trip to Montserrat and lunch in the port of Sitges
The best option if you want to see a little bit more than Barcelona.
This amazing mountain structure where the Benedictine monks built a monastery dedicated to the Black Madonna of Montserrat is worth your while. Amazing views of the surrounding landscape and a spiritual aura surrounds the abbey.
We will also stop at the local market and try some local products like cheese "mato" and three types of local liquor.
I will do my best to persuade you in an adventurous hike of 30 minutes, at the Cross of Saint Michael, where we can enjoy some breathtaking views.
We will have lunch in Sitges, a city by the sea, in the best restaurant in the port, trying local cuisine.

I am a local tour guide, but cannot give explanations inside Sagrada Familia; I do explain it from the outside, where most of the information is. I can recommend where to buy tickets with NO WAITING LINES, or I can customise a tour with tickets included.
