Many locals visit Montserrat in their free time, especially on Sundays. Some visitors are looking for fresh air and hiking. Others want to attend mass, take communion, see the Black Madonna and light a candle to thank her for something. If you’re feeling particularly energetic, athletic, and outdoorsy, we will be more than happy to walk with you towards Sant Miquel, one of the most beautiful sites near the monastery, or to the fantastic views of Sant Joan. Just let us know!
If you are an art lover, you may like to visit the Museum of Montserrat, which shows a great collection of Caravaggio paintings, Picasso, Miró, Salvador Dali, among many others. Furthermore, the museum of Montserrat houses an important collection of archaeological sculptures of the Ancient Middle East. We´ll even see an Egyptian mummy!! The visit to the museum is optional.
Combine Montserrat with a Barcelona city tour! A great option if you don´t have too much time. Click here
Combine Montserrat and the Cave of Saint Ignatius of Loyola in Manresa. If you are a religious person and you are particularly interested in the history of the Jesuits, we highly recommend another of our best selling tours: The Montserrat & Saint Ignatius of Loyola Cave.
Go small you won’t regret it
Carolina was our guide to Montserrat and under her exceptionally pleasant guidance, we walked to the top and took the funicular railway down. It was quite a nice hike up that apparently few undertake, preferring to take the rail up and walk down as an option. The solitude, vistas, and plant life were beautiful
I can’t say enough positive things about our experience with Carolina and Skip the Line. We were unsure about using a tour guide because we had never used one before, so we waited until we arrived in Barcelona to set something up. They responded immediately and were flexible concerning meeting times. We made an easy payment through PayPal and we were all set up. We met up with Carolina two blocks from where we were staying and she immediately engaged our 6 and 9-year-old kids. We went on to a tour that was incredibly informative from a historical perspective, but also in current events. And, it was great to get the perspective on current events from a local. Carolina was honest AND even-handed. The tour ended with “Certificates of Achievement” in understanding Barcelona for my kids. Skip the Line and Carolina were a highlight of our trip and I highly recommend them.
Best way to start our Trip !!!!
We signed up for the Highlights tour on our first full day in Barcelona and it was the perfect way to start our trip. Carolina was a great and patient guide and she really helped us get our bearings. We saw a few different areas of the city, learned a lot about each neighborhood, and ended up with a great tour of La Sagrada Familia. I highly recommend scheduling a tour with Skip the Line – they were professional, on time, organized and really fun to hang out with!
