How to Choose a Montserrat Tour

How to Choose a Montserrat Tour

Home to an 11th-century Benedictine abbey that hugs the Catalonian cliffs, Montserrat is a must-visit day trip destination from Barcelona. From art lovers to time-pressed sightseers, there's a tour to fit any travel style. Here are your options.

For the Time-Crunched Visitor

Travelers short on time can still squeeze in a visit to this important religious site on a half-day tour from Barcelona. After arriving by minivan or air-conditioned coach, enjoy plenty of time to explore the monastery and museum and take in the scenery. It’s also possible to combine the visit with skip-the-line access to the Sagrada Familia back in Barcelona.

For the Budget Traveler

Wallet-conscious travelers can save money by combining a half-day tour of Montserrat with a guided exploration of Antoni Gaudí's architectural marvels in Barcelona. Bundling these tours lets you see a lot in a short period of time, all without straining your travel budget.

For the Art Lover

A tour to Montserrat gives the art-loving traveler the chance to explore the collection of religious art within the Museum of Montserrat. Depending on the tour you choose, you could pair your visit with an afternoon spent touring some of Gaudí's architectural masterpieces, including Park Güell, Colonia Güell, La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, and La Pedrera.

For the Adventurer

Montserrat might be most famous for its monastery, but it's also home to some excellent hiking trails, ranging from easy to challenging. A half- or full-day guided hiking tour to the mountain typically includes time to visit the monastery before setting off to take in the surrounding scenery.

For the Wine Enthusiast

Combining a day trip to Montserrat with a wine or cava tasting is a great way to enjoy both the beautiful countryside and the beverages of Catalonia. Options include both private and small-group tours to the mountaintop monastery and the region's cava cellars for an afternoon of cheese and wine tasting.

For the Bucket-Lister

Visiting Montserrat is a highlight of any Barcelona itinerary, especially with an early-access experience. Tour the grounds before the crowds arrive to capture those tourist-free photos of the Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Depending on the tour, you might also visit the less-frequented Romanesque monastery of Santa Cecelia de Montserrat.
