Overview

Start with a panoramic bus tour of the elegant Paseo de Gracia, home to Gaudi's most famous buildings.

From there, head toward the Mediterranean coast. Pass the Arch de Triumph, Ciutadella Park, the Olympic Village, the Olympic Port, the beach of Barcelona, and the fishermen’s neighborhood of La Barceloneta, Port Vell (the Old Harbor), Plaza de Colon, and Las Ramblas boulevard, all the way up to the mountain of Montjuïc.

In Montjuïc, make a brief stop at the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium, and then travel to the cable car station near the Montjuïc Castle for a funicular ride with views over Barcelona.

Continue the tour through Montjuïc Olympic facilities, up to the Poble Espanyol. Return to the city center, passing through the spectacular Plaza de Espanya, where you can admire the Venetian Towers, the fountains of Montjuic, the National Palace Museum MNAC, and Las Arenas Shopping Mall, built on the old Barcelona Bullring.

In the afternoon, drive on a comfortable air conditioned bus to the mountains of Montserrat. These rocks were formed by natural cement of sand during centuries, shaped by the wind and rain.

Then head up to Montserrat with the cogwheel train. The air conditioned train has panoramic windows, giving you a spectacular view of the mountain during the 15-minute ride.

Visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th-century Romanesque carving of Verge Moreneta (Black Madonna). The Benedict sanctuary of Montserrat was founded in 1025, and provides a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia, enshrined in the monastery's Royal Basilica. The little monastery soon began to receive pilgrims and visitors that contributed to the spread of stories of miracles and wonders performed by the Virgin. Today, Montserrat has been modernized to continue attending the needs of the pilgrims, one thousand years after it was originally founded.

You will be given some free time to visit the audiovisual exhibition about the history and creation of Montserrat. A tasting of Montserrat's typical liquors is also included.
