What will you find?

Start your day trip from Barcelona at Colonia Güell, a small worker's village built in 1882. Here, enjoy a guided visit of Antoni Gaudí's crypt, an impressive church, which Gaudí built but never fully finished. Be impressed by the stunning architecture, which is similar to Gaudí’s most famous work – the beautiful Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

Your next stop is Montserrat, a craggy mountain outside of Barcelona. Montserrat is home to a Benedictine monastery founded in the 11th century and provides a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia who is enshrined in the monastery's Royal Basilica.

Also at Montserrat, ride to the top of the mountain on the rack railway, and enjoy the panoramic views. You will have free time to explore Montserrat on your own and have lunch in one of the restaurants to taste the Spanish cuisine. Your guide will always be there to answer any questions.

  1. Great tour--guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Going to Montserrat was the highlight (and it was great to have a few hours to tour on our own). Highly recommended!
  2. Beautiful Montserrat. We have been there before, but never went up to the top of the mountain, never experienced the cable car or the train. This time, we tried everything. We love it. Beautiful pieces of art on those mountains. My camera didn't stop clicking all over. I like the guide's explanation, and then we were free to go around, visited the Black Madonna, went up to the top of the mountain, had lunch, and came back down to the museum. The boys choir singing was terrific. That was something I didn't want to miss. The morning tour to Colonia Guell was also great. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
  3. Montserrat is beautiful, worth it. Gaudi was a genius.
  4. Absolutely a not to be missed tour. Tour guide (Maribel) was very special and extremely knowledgable. A tour that we will never forget, so much to see and do!!!
  5. Colonia Guell and the Gaudi Crypt were a very interesting stop. After visiting Parc Guell and the Sagrada Family in Barcelona the day before, we understood more the information on the creation of the Colonia and could appreciate the Gaudi style. Monserrat was an unexpected treat and listening the the Monserrat Choir boys in the church was superb. Worth the trip.
