Your private tour guide will meet you at your hotel or apartment to start off your 7-hour private experience, then you will head to the train station by public transport, where we will take the train and enjoy the Catalonian landscape on our way to Monistrol, located at the bottom of the mountain. Once there you can choose between the rack train or the cable car to get to the popular Santa María de Montserrat Abbey. From this viewpoint you will be able to take amazing pictures. We will visit the Basilica and we will visit the Virgin of Montserrat, known as Black Madonna “La Moreneta”, a wood carving from the twelfth century, which is the patron saint of Catalonia. During our visit to this Benedictine monastery, founded in the eleventh century, we will listen to the fantastic boys’ choir of L’Escolania de Montserrat, one of the most famous children choirs in Europe, and the oldest (fourteenth century). After this experience we can do some hiking to an amazing viewpoint located about 25 minutes away from the monastery or watch an audiovisual to found out about the life of the monks. At the end of this experience we will have lunch to recharge our batteries and return to Barcelona. For those who love nature and culture, this will be a great experience, for sure! During the tour we will talk about the city's gay history, lifestyle, nightlife ... We will make sure you have all the information to fully enjoy one of the most gayfriendly cities in the world!
