About the tour

First stop

Your accessible private transfer will pick you up from your hotel in Barcelona or from the cruise port to start your accessible tour to the breathtaking Monastery of Montserrat. North-West of Barcelona rises the Montserrat mountain. It is one of the most stunning landmarks in the province of Catalunya. Enjoy the views of the unusual rock formations before arriving to the abbey. On one side, you see the city of Barcelona from above. On the other side, there are the magical snowy mountain tops of the Pyrenees.

Arrival is timed for entry into the auditorium to be followed by entry into the Basilica to enjoy the sounds of the famous Montserrat Boys Choir. The boys perform Monday to Friday, except in August. Also keep in mind, that on occasions, the Boys Choir may be on tour.

Secondly, you can view La Moreneta, the ‘Virgin of Montserrat’ or ‘Black Madonna’ from the church. There is time for you to get a closer view by means of the wheelchair lift on the side of the Monastery, however this is totally up to you.

Second stop

Additionally, you visit the Montserrat interactive museum. There you have the opportunity to see the day to day life at Montserrat Monastery. The story is told by means of audio and visual aids. After lunch in one of the restaurants (not included), you have some free time to enjoy the spectacular views.
