What to expect

Your private day trip from Barcelona heads first to Montserrat, a craggy mountain outside of the city that is home to a Benedictine abbey. You'll visit a sanctuary in the abbey that houses La Moreneta, a 12th-century statue of a black Virgin Mary. The sanctuary has been a destination for pilgrims and other visitors for almost 1,000 years.

You’ll also have time to visit the Museum of Montserrat, with its five collections ranging from Archaeology from the Biblical East to Modern Painting and Sculpture. Or discover the different walking paths on Montserrat – there are routes to suit all tastes and energy levels. After lunch, you’ll visit Colonia Güell, where you’ll see an unfinished church by Antoni Gaudi.

Finally, finish your day trip back in Barcelona at Park Güell, the magical city garden designed by Gaudí that features some of his most creative designs. See the famous mosaic lizard and strange 'Gingerbread Houses' that enchant visitors of all ages.

Follow the winding alleys, passing over bridges or under twisting rock pillars. Admire the fascinating ceramic benches and the fantastic view over Barcelona. Get lost in the fascinating labyrinth made up of rocks and pine trees.
