What To Expect
In Barcelona, history and traditions go hand in hand with emerging fashion and new trends in cuisine, culture and art. To experience all the nuances and both of these faces of Barcelona, it would be nice to begin at the port of Barcelona to see how it has changed to become a modern highlight of the city. We will continue at the historic center, visiting places such as Via Laietana, the cathedral and its cloister, the Gothic Quarter and Placa Sant Jaume. Following this immersion in traditional Barcelona, we approach the place of key change in the city. With the hosting of the Olympic Games, Barcelona opened itself up to the sea and experienced economic and social invigoration. What better way to immerse ourselves in era of change than to pass by the Olympic Village and the Olympic Port and then climb Montjuic to visit the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium, the Palau Sant Jordi and the Calatrava Tower.
Visit El Poble Espanyol (the Spanish Village), collection of traditional buildings from all over Spain, demonstrating a selection of the handcrafts made in country. Marvel at the aerial view of Barcelona from the cable car, which brings us to Montjuic's Castle.
After the tour to Barcelona, you will have 1,5 hour free time before your next tour to Montserrat. After driving through picturesque little villages with the cog-wheel train, you will arrive at the incomparable setting of the mountain of Montserrat, which rises majestically to 4,051 feet (1,236 meters). Next, visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th century Romanesque carving of Virgen Moreneta, the Black Virgin. The Royal Basilica has been one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Spain for hundreds of years. On some days the children's choir sings in the monastery at midday, and so you may be fortunate enough to catch one of their delightful performances. The price includes a taste of 4 typical liquors of Montserrat and entrance free to Audiovisual "Montserrat Portes Endins".
