If you are visiting Barcelona before, during, or after your cruise, or simply in town on Holiday, you must take advantage of this great opportunity to take the short trek to Montserrat. This half-day excursion is led by a bilingual, expert guide who will take you on a journey through history and nature. Upon meeting at a central location, and utilizing safe, private transportation on the way to the Monastery, you will admire the Massif of Montserrat, a spectacular multi-peaked rocky range packed of unique needle-shape formations.
Upon arrival, you will explore the Monastery, which was founded in the 10th century and still functions to this day with over 150 monks. It is also well-known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta (the dark one), who is the patron saint of Catalonia. Your guide will bring history alive through their dynamic presentation of both the historical and cultural elements of this Monastery, dating back nearly a thousand years.
As a feast for your ears, you will be treated to the angelic voices of Escolania de Montserrat, one of the oldest boy choirs in Europe. Following your time in the monastery, your ticket allows you to board the Montserrat Cable Car where you will observe the area's fascinating flora and fauna as you descend to a local equestrian center located at the foothill of the Massif.
Get ready for a thrilling horseback ride along the Natural Park, offering breathtaking views of Montserrat, while enjoying the freedom and tranquility of the countryside. Led by experienced guides, the route is suitable for everyone. Enjoy the ride and the spectacular sight of the mountain! Your riding time is approximately 2 hours. Note that only one person per horse is allowed - no tandem riding. Private transportation will return you to Barcelona where you are free to explore or return to your cruise ship or hotel at your own leisure and expense.
Comfortable clothing, footwear, and a camera are all you need to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. This excursion highlights the very best of Catalonia, exploring both culture and history. Private, luxury transportation and a passionate, bilingual excursion guide, ensure a top quality, personalized experience!
