By private vehicle and a licensed English speaking guide, you will enjoy your drive up the mountain. Your drop-off at the Monastery entrance will begin your monastic experience; your guide will walk you around the area while imparting the history. From the top, you can experience a view far into the landscape of Catalonia and of Barcelona. Many visitors are drawn to the location to see the black Madonna, patron saint of Catalonia.
You will have time to visit the Madonna, go to mass, do some shopping, have a little lunch, and perhaps take the funicular to the top. Your guide will accompany you if you wish. You may want to tour the Museum of Montserrat monastery, where you can see works of major artists such as Dali, El Greco, Monet, and Giordano. Additionally, you can see liturgical and archaeological exhibits.
If your group is a little larger and people would like to venture in different directions, your guide will give you suggestions and set a meeting time and place to gather before returning to Barcelona.
