General Information

The area of the Moistrol de Montserrat (Monastery of Montserrat) is one of the most popular attractions outside Barcelona. Many tourists take a day trip from the city in order to visit the ancient abbey and the amazing mountainous area which surrounds it. Others stop there during their round trip in northern Spain, they combine it with a tour to Tarragona or to the Pyrenees, or sometimes even with a trip to Costa Brava.

For the reasons mentioned above, there is a big variety of tours that pass by the monastery. Some of them are a day trip that starts in the morning in Barcelona and bring the participant back to the city at the end of the day. There are tours that focus just on the church, but others combine it with different hiking tours. There are several tours that spend more than a day in the area of the monastery, so tourists can enjoy the marvelous national park. Another kind of guided tours are ones that are part of bigger trips in northern Spain (for additional information – Attractions and Tours in Barcelona).

In order not to get lost in such a variety, it is recommended to make up one’s mind exactly what one is looking for before ordering the tour.

It is recommended to visit the Monastery of Montserrat with a guided tour organized as a day trip. It is more convenient than public transportation which does not provide a direct travel, and less expensive than renting a car for only a day (for additional information – Getting to the Monastery of MontserratParking Near Montserrat, Car Rental in Barcelona, Car Rental in Spain).
