Montserrat Full Day and Santa Cecilia monastery with optional museum admission ticket

Discover two of the most mystic Catalan wonders on our full day tour. See the Black Madonna known as La Moreneta in the Basilica of Montserrat.

Board a coach from our office in central Barcelona to the magical mountain of Montserrat. Famous for its peculiar morphology, its name comes from the Catalan words Mont (mountain) and Serrat (serrated). World-famous for its rocky geography, Montserrat beautiful scenery was declared National Park in 1987 to protect its natural and cultural wealth.

Follow your local guide through the site and learn about the history and architectural style of the Monastery. A community of 80 monks currently lives and follow the rule of Saint Benedict in Montserrat. Fall in love with the Gothic and Renaissance details of the basilica and sanctuary. Learn about the legend of the miraculous apparition of the Madonna and Child in the cave of Santa Cova. To this day their wood carving is kept in the Church of the monastery, which you will be able to visit later. The figure is popularly known as La Moreneta (The Black Madonna) as a result of a varnish reaction.

After the guided tour you will be given about 3 hours of free time. Then, you can shop for locally produced treats, have lunch, listen to one of the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe (subject to their schedule), visit the audio visual exhibition, visit the museum (if option selected) or taste the finest liquors made in the region. Besides the main area, there are a great number of small churches and trails you can hike to.

Join your guide back again around 3PM for the second part of the visit, an exclusive guided tour of the Sacristy. Back on the bus we will drive to Santa Cecilia, first monastery built in the mountain. This construction is located in a privileged and peaceful natural terrace with breathtaking views of the peaks. Enjoy the artistic intervention of the Irish painter Sean Scully and be amazed by its fusion of Christian and avant-garde artworks.
