Start your private 8-hour tour with a pick up from your hotel in Barcelona. Your guide will lead you to fascinating spots throughout the day and inform you of their deep history. Hop in a comfortable minivan and enjoy a scenic ride to your first destination. The dramatic mountains and scenery surrounding the Monastery of St Maria of Montserrat are just as stunning as the monastery itself. Take in panoramic views of Catalonia and the Pyrenees as you approach it. Founded in 1025, the Monastery of St Maria of Montserrat is one of the most significant pilgrimage sites in all of Spain. Learn about the history behind La Moreneta, the Black Madonna, patron saint of Catalonia, tucked in the basilica. Listen to the beautiful song of the choir, one of the oldest children’s choirs in Europe. Peruse the museum, explore the Holy Cave and take in the beauty of the architecture, some of the best in Spain. Next, enjoy the scenic ride to Collbató. Enter an opening in the face of the towering mountain and descend to its interior for a tour of the galleries of the Salnitre Caves, full of stalactites and stalgmites. Listen as your guide describes the geological formations of the mountain and explains the habitat of the region’s first neolithic settlers. Indulge in a typical Catalan lunch (at your own expense) either in Montserrat Abbey or Collbató. At the end of the tour, relax on the ride back to your Barcelona hotel in the late afternoon.
