Tour Description:

A few kilometers away from the busy Barcelona stands one of the most impressive mountains of Catalonia. The tour begins at 8:15 AM. Just a few kilometers away driving to the north in a air-conditioned and comfortable vehicle (in about 1 hour) you will be in the sacred monastery of Montserrat surrounded by a majestic rocky landscape that will leave you spechless.
Montserrat transmits peace and tranquility mixed with large doses of adventure and mystery.

Visit the monastic centre of Catalunya, home of the famous Lady of Montserrat, popularly known as La Moreneta (the Dark One), due to the dark color of her skin. La Moreneta is a truly beautiful 12th century Romanesque polychrome carving with a baby Jesus on Her lap.

Afterwards we give you the opportunity to take hike in the paths surrounding the Monastery . We suggest you to discover the paths less walked of the magnificent Montserrat and uncover the secrets of the most impressive parts of this rock formation. We will see the sanctuary from the distance, which has been in use for almost 1000 years for pilgrims, who have been inspired by this spectacular mountain. In addition, If you wish we invite you to discover an old hermitage where pilgrims retreated.

At 1pm on weekdays (12am on Sundays) there is the opportunity to hear one of Europe’s nicest children’s choirs. “Escolania” is comprised of more than fifty boys, from nine to fourteen years old, who come from all over Catalonia to take part in daily prayer at the Sanctuary.

    Super gut, muss man unbedingt gemacht haben

  2. Loved this Montserrat tour. LivingIT has class and they pay particular attention to stellar customer service and cater to the customer. Let me explain.

    My wife and I signed up for this tour many months in advance. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to find the tour office on a Sunday, early morning. So I asked for hotel pickup/drop-off service. They told me to call again a few days prior to the tour dates.

    I emailed about 2 weeks prior and received a quick response and kind response that the driver will be there at 8:15 am.

    At 8:15 am the day of the trip, a Honda showed up with the name of tour on the side of the Honda. We got in and I immediately noticed that we were driving away from where I had mapped the tour office. I asked where we were going. He said to Montserrat and that we were the only people signed up for this tour.

    We now had a private tour. The guide was excellent and very friendly. He gave us a very personal tour and explained everything to use. He went out of his way to let us try a couple of Spanish dishes, one that looked like cottage cheese (and honey) but far better and another a sweet port that was poured into a strange looking bottle with sprout. He said that it was traditional to hold the sprout high above the mouth and let it pour in. This was amazing and messy. We loved the care he took.

    What was best of all is that LivingIT did not cancel our trip given only two people signed up. They could have easily done that. So they sent one of their best guides to go with us for most of the day. That is style and stellar customer service.

    I highly recommend LivingIT and we will always choose them in the future.

    Tranquility, amazing legends, beautiful Nature, spiritual music, real history and a great great guide!
    This tour was above and beyond our expectations.
    Since there are lots of tours going to Montserrat, it was difficult for us to chose which one to book. But, now I am completely sure that we made the best choice! Thank you LIVINGIT for making us live such a nice morning!
    By the way, thanks to our guide for inviting us and letting us taste the mató. Just delicious!

    Barbera has a fantastic host and guide. What a great trip to a fantastic place, we arrived early which was well worth the 8.15 start from Barcelona. The atmosphere in the whole place was inspiring, visiting the Black Madona followed by a walk to the cross marking the cave it was found, brilliant.

    “perfect tour guide knowledgeable”

    This was one of the highlights of our Barcelona trip. The trip to Montserrat was only outstanding because of our wonderful quide, Borja. He is everything you want in a guide; knowledgeable, courteous, helpful and just a nice person. We got to Montserrat early and this was a wise decision as the line starts early and gets quite long. We saw the Virgin statue first, climbed the trail to the cross, the went inside the church to hear the amazing boys choir. You must stop and buy from the local vendors. The honey and figs were so delicious. This is a must do stop and it’s only 40 minutes outside Barcelona. Thank you VELTRA and Borja for. Memorable time.

    “Absolutely fabulous!!”
    We had multiple guides and tours during our 3 weeks in the Mediterranean. This was by far our favorite tour and guide!! We loved seeing Montserrat and our walk in that beautiful setting!! Joan our guide was outstanding!! He speaks English very well and was very easy to understand! He was so accommodating and went way above and beyond in adapting the “schedule.” He gave us multiple options of what we could do and see. He was extremely helpful and accommodating of my 80 year old Mom. Joan wasn’t “bound” by a schedule. We ended up with a 7 hour tour (because we were slow) and yet he didn’t rush us or act bothered by our lateness. He was so kind!! He was extremely informative and so knowledgeable!! We saw the Cathedral, visited the black Madonna, rode the fundicular and went for a walk, stopped for coffee, listened to the boys choir, and tasted the local cheeses. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. This was a personal/private tour.

    Montserrat is spectacular. It was a wonderful experience. Our guide Borja was great. He shared a lot of information and went out of his way to send us recommendations on some restaurants and photographs. Thank you Borja and LIVING IT for this enjoyable tour.

    The Montserrat Monastery and Natural Park Tour must be in your bucket list once you visit Barcelona. The church, the mountain, the view, & the people, all worth everything. I’m grateful to Borja, our assigned tour guide from LivingIt, who was very kind, helpful and accommodating to us. I was not expecting that it would be like a private tour. Borja was like a new found friend in Barcelona who gave us a lot of information, not only about Montserrat, but an overview of the history of Barcelona. Thank you Borja and thank you LivingIt.
    May you continue inspiring tourists who visit your country because aside from the tour itself, what matter most is the experience beyond the tour.
    May God always guide you as you guide your tourists

    Contratamos al equipo de Living It para conocer el monasterio de Montserrat y no podría haber sido una experiencia mejor. Barbara y su equipo lo hicieron todo para hacer de nuestra experiencia lo más completa y agradable posible. Hicimos el paseo el día de Reyes (06/01/2017) que es una fecha muy estimada por el pueblo español. El personal era muy amable y servicial. Además de disfrutar del paseo al monasterio que es imperdible para quien está en Barcelona, aprendemos mucho sobre las costumbres y tradiciones de esta fiesta. Lo recomiendo muchísimo.
