Private tour to Montserrat Legends and Caves
Enjoy a full day guided tour from Barcelona to Montserrat.
For over 8 hours experience the legends of the Monastery of Montserrat and descend into the fascinating underground world of the magic mountain, in the intimate atmosphere of a private group.
The mountain of Montserrat, internationally renowned for its physiognomy and its Monastery, hides a subterranean world almost unknown: a wide range of galleries and caves that run through the seemingly compact mountain of Montserrat.
The tour begins with a visit to Collbató, the entry door to the mountain. There we will descend into the inside of the magic mountain and tour around the 400 meters of galleries of Salnitre’s Cave. Expert guides will describe the features resulting from the geological process that shaped the cavity, decorated with stalagmites and stalactites, and show us the habitat of the first Neolithic settlers, thousands of years ago.
Next we will go to the Monastery of St. Maria of Montserrat founded in 1025, one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Spain. During a rise of more than 720 meters high we will contemplate the stunning panoramic views of Catalonia, and the Pyrenees. In the Basilica we will admire La Moreneta, the Black Madonna, patron saint of Catalonia. Among the different activities taking place in the Basilica the choir stands out, being one the oldest children choirs in Europe, dating from the 13th century.
After lunch (not included) it will be time to walk the trail to the Holy Cave where, according to tradition, the Black Madonna was discovered. This will take us to the afternoon and we will return to Barcelona where we will say goodbye at 5.30 pm.
