Description

Start your half day trip from Barcelona in comfortable Bus to the mountain of Montserrat which rises majestically to 4.051 feet (1.236 meter). This Montserrat Morning Tour lasts about 5 and a half hours and you will be accompanied the whole time by an official tour guide.

The rocks of Montserrat formed by natural cement of sand during the centurys affected by the wind and rain who shaped the mountain with strange and varied forms. The popular imagination has seen human or animal shape in some of these peaks, giving them names and inventing legends to explain their fantastic origins. You will visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th century Romanesque carving of Virgen Moreneta (the Black Virgin). The Benedict sanctuary of Montserrat has been founded at 1025 and provides a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia who is enshrined in the monastery’s Royal Basilica. The little monastery soon began to receive pilgrims and visitors who contributed to the spread of stories of miracles and wonders performed by the Virgin. Today Montserrat has been modernized to continue attending to the needs to pilgrims one thousand years after it was originally founded.

On some days the children’s choir sings in the monastery and so you may be fortunate enough to catch one of their delightful performances.
