What to expect

Discover Montserrat on your own with an audio guide, a map, and an informative booklet. Explore the most important facets of the monastery's history and the major sites of the Sanctuary of Montserrat.

Located in a building designed by the architect Josep Puig I Cadafalch, the Museum of Montserrat (MDM) is home to one of the country's most important art collections. Containing works by Caravaggio, El Greco, Rusiñol, Casas, Picasso, Dali, Monet, and others, it also has a valuable collection of the Archaeology of the Ancient World with archaeological remains from the Near East (ancient Persia, Mesopotamia, Egypt, the Holy Land). There also are temporary exhibitions in addition to the permanent collection. The MDM was declared a National Museum of Spain in 2006.

The new completely renovated Montserrat audiovisual space is the result of the monastery's desire to provide more information to the thousands of pilgrims and visitors who want to know what Montserrat is and what it means. The exhibition is based on three fundamental areas: the mountain, the monastery, and the sanctuary.

In your trip to Montserrat, you can choose one of these three options:

  • Montserrat Experience: Includes audio guide Museum Open Air, entrance to the Audiovisual Space and free access to the Basilica
  • Montserrat Experience Gastronomic: Includes audio guide Museum Open Air, entrance to the Audiovisual Space, free access to the Basilica, lunch at buffet and spirits tasting
  • Montserrat Experience Gastronomic with train and rack railway: Includes audio guide Museum Open Air, entrance to the Audiovisual Space, fee access to the Basilica, lunch at buffet and spirits tasting and train (from/to Barcelona) + Rack railway. From the Barcelona-Pl. Espanya station there are Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya trains to Montserrat every hour beginning at 8.36am. Opening hours of the ticket office at the Plaça Espanya FGC: 8.00am to 2.00pm (outside these times you may not validate your transport ticket)
