Escape to one of the most well-known pilgrimages in Spain, protected by the Patron Saint of Cataluña: The Black Madonna.

Description

The monastery itself has been in place since 1025 and today the Monastery is an authentic retreat of significant religious importance. Each year it draws thousands of pilgrims who come to see their beloved Black Madonna, now you con enjoy with the Montserrat Day Trip from Barcelona.

On this guided tour we will enter the Royal Basilica of Montserrat where we will be able to admire a little closer the “Moreneta” (the little dark-skinned one) as we listen to the stories of miracles or the origin of her skin colour. 

We will also have the chance to discover a more in-depth account of the monastery´s history in the audiovisual room, sample the liquors made by the monks and enjoy the incredible views from up in the mountains whose rocks seem to have a very distinct similarity to an animal or human shape adding an even more mysterious touch to this mystical place. 

Moreover, on certain days you may even have the chance to listen to the Escolanía de Montserrat, one of the oldest boys´ choir in Europe. 

The Montserrat Day Trip from Barcelona can be done in the morning or in the afternoon on the funicular railway known as the “cremallera” an amazing trip along the “serrated mountain”.
