Things to do Montserrat Day Trip from Barcelona

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. 

Together with your guide, you will board the rack railway towards the center of Montserrat enjoying impressive views. Fall in love with the fusion of Gothic and Renaissance styles in its basilica and sanctuary. Discover that the importance of the place is due to the legend that narrates the miraculous appearance of a representation of the Virgin with the baby Jesus in one of the caves of the mountain, the Santa Cova.

Visit this wooden carving, currently kept in the Church of the monastery. The figure is popularly known as La Moreneta due to a reaction of the varnish over time, which has darkened it. Montserrat is closely linked to spirituality. Today a community of 80 monks inhabits the place following the rule of San Benito. For this reason, in addition to the main monastery, the mountain is home to a large number of churches and hermitages, some already abandoned.

We will also be able to learn more about the history of the monastery with a visit to the Audiovisual Space, try some homemade liquors made by the monks and enjoy the incredible views from the mountain, whose rocks seem to draw animal and human shapes, giving it an even more mysterious touch and mystical to the place.

After the guided tour, you will have free time to access the basilica and visit La Moreneta, admire the fabulous landscape and visit the market of agricultural and typical products of the area. With the visit to La Moreneta you will get a souvenir gift.

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”.
