Gaze at blue skies from Barcelona’s most wonderful mountain. People call it in different ways: Montserrat, the Magical Mountain… but there’s one thing that everybody agrees on: its breathtaking beauty.
Montserrat was once completely covered by ice, and when it melted, the water drew the mountain’s silhouette. But mysticism here goes beyond the shapes: in the 9th century, one of the few black madonnas was found buried in a cave in Montserrat: the Moreneta.
A Monastery was built on top of the mountain and since then, it’s a spot where all Catholics want to be at least once in a lifetime. Faith, nature, and amazing landscapes come together for a unique experience near Barcelona. Take this half or full day Montserrat tour from Barcelona and enjoy a morning amid nature!
