Montserrat with cable train

Discover the magical mountain of Montserrat, spiritual centre of Catalonia and a place of pilgrimage for many Catalans. The Natural Park of the Mountain of Montserrat is a unique natural environment with its singular rock formations. It also houses the Abbey of Montserrat, a Benedictine Monastery with almost 1000 years of history. To get to the mountain we will climb almost 550m by the Montserrat Rack Railway, departing from Monistrol station before being driven the remaining 5km by road until we reach the Abbey. Once there we will enjoy a brief audio-visual presentation, allowing us to find about life behind the Monastery walls, its functioning, and the everyday lives of the monks and choirboys. Afterwards you will get the chance to taste a liqueur prepared in the Abbey and have plenty of time to explore the attractions of Montserrat for yourselves, including the Basilica, the choir, the museums, the cable car and the Black Virgin of Montserrat known as La Moreneta. You will also have time for a picnic lunch and for buying souvenirs before returning to your resort by coach.
