What To Expect
After driving through picturesque little villages, 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 Madonna. Discover how pilgrims and visitors contributed to the spread of stories of miracles and wonders performed by the Virgin. Learn how the Royal Basilica has become and still remains one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Spain one thousand years after it was originally founded.
On some days, The Escolania of Montserrat, which is one of the oldest boys choirs in Europe, sings in the monastery at midday, and so you may be fortunate enough to catch one of their delightful performances.
On this tour, you will be given some free time to visit the audio visual exhibition "Montserrat Portes Endins", about the history and creation of Montserrat. You will also have the opportunity to taste 4 typical liquors of Montserrat, handmade by the monks of the monastery!
