We picked the wrong day to go

This is a great experience, we just went when it was 39 degrees. Too hot negotiate the slopes and properly investigate. Travel and meal arrangements were fine; we didn’t have the energy to find the wine tasting. We loved the church and Black Madonna.

Guide provide very good overview

Would probably skip the museum, a lot of exhibits and limited time. There wasn't as much information regarding the restoration of the monastery as I expected.

This is a nice deal. We didn't have to worry about anything. Plus the map and the audio guide were really handy as the there are different routes you can take. We learned a lot, plus the place is just beautiful. If you are going in winter like us, dress well it's chilly up there!

Great tour to Montserrat

If you want to do everything there is to do at Montserrat, you'll want a full day. But as is, we had time to see the boy's choir, grab a quick bite to eat, take the furnicular to the top of the mountain, and hike around for about 45 minutes.

Loved our guide as well!

This is an easy day trip that gives you beautiful views and interesting history. Montserrat is unbelievable- make sure you stay to hear the children sing at 1pm. And the winery was a really nice trip.

Just 45 minutes from Barcelona, this mountain is a must-see. Visitors can choose to hike up the hills of the natural park or take a cable car directly to the Benedictine Monastery in the mountain.

Barcelona Tours-Montserrat: Visitor Tips

  • Wear comfortable shoes: If you are planning to hike through the natural park or simply you have an action-packed day ahead, think of your feet! A Barcelona day trip is easily doable, but if the train is packed, then you may have to stand.
  • Dress appropriately: Wear respectful attire for the Benedictine Monastery, but also remember to pack both a jumper and sunscreen! Mountain weather can change very suddenly, so be prepared both for scorching summer sun and wind.
  • Save money with combination Montserrat tickets: To get to the top of the mountain, you will need to take the train from Barcelona, Plaça Espanya. Then you have the choice of walking, rack railway or the cable car. Choose a Monistrol de Montserrat combined ticket to save buying (and queueing) twice! 
  • “Ask me anything”: This special corner of Catalonia has a fascinating history and mysterious past. Book a tour and ask your expert guide all your most burning questions! Arrive as a tourist, and leave as a local! 
  • Short on time? If you desire a highly personalized tour, then your best bet is to book a Montserrat private tour. This way you can tailor your visit for your perfect ratio of museum or mountain, cava or climbing!

FAQ

Do I need to take a Monserrat guided tour?

If you want to learn about the fascinating history of this mountain range, then a guide can really enhance your experience. Enjoy the views and architecture while learning all about the wonderous, sometimes tragic history behind them. Here is your selection of the best Montserrat tours.

What are the Montserrat opening hours?

The Basilica is open every day from 7.30 am to 8 pm. A Montserrat guided tour will ensure you see the best of the Basilica and the surrounding community.

How do I get to Montserrat?

The easiest way to get from Barcelona is to hop on the train from Plaça Espanya (you can’t get it from Plaça Catalunya). Driving to the mountain is an option, but you will likely face heavy traffic jams. There is also very little parking at the top. Booking a Montserrat tour, including your ticket from Barcelona, ensures you won’t get lost along the way.

Why is it Montserrat important?

A Montserrat day trip from Barcelona is perfect for getting to know an important part of Catalonia better. It is significant mainly to the Catalan people who view it as a focal point of Catalonia. It is also home to the Catalan Patron Saint, the Black Madonna, something you will be sure to learn about on your tour.

Do I need to buy a Montserrat Barcelona ticket?

To get from Barcelona to Montserrat on public transport, you will need to buy separate tickets for the train, cable car and the Sant Joan funicular to the top of the mountain. You also have the option of buying combined tickets like Trans Montserrat (the Santa Cova funicular is only included when in service). For a smooth journey with add-ons like lunch included or a visit to a vineyard, book your Montserrat tickets online ahead of time.
