Arriving early in Montserrat enables you to enjoy the silence and the magic of the spot: the monastery and the mountain are so serene! For this reason, we suggest leaving Barcelona at 7.30 am or maximum at 8.00 am. Aside from being a sacred place of worship, Montserrat is also an extraordinary Natural Park, comparable to a monumental rocky sculpture. It is a profoundly enigmatic and beautiful place where a large community of Benedictine monks performs their spiritual work. You will visit the Basilica and the Shrine with the Holy Image of St Mary or Black Madonna and our tour guide will give you all the information available regarding this spectacular sight. Depending on your level of fitness, you might want to take a walk on the mountain to enjoy the fabulous rock formations. The activity level of the stroll is moderate and our Private Tour Guide will take care of you. There is no doubt about it: Barcelona VIP´s private tour is the best way to enjoy one of Spain’s most enigmatic sites.
