B2A Montserrat Afternoon Tour overview

Montserrat mountain and abbey is one of Barcelona and Spain's most popular tourist attractions with breathtaking scenery, unique rock formations and panoramic views of the countryside. This historic abbey and monastery has been perched at 726 metres height on Montserrat mountain for almost a thousand years.
Our Montserrat afternoon tour starts with a 1 hour walk up to St. Michaels Cross (around 20 minutes walk each way with some quite steep inclines) to enjoy breathtaking views. Then we visit the basilica and sanctuary of the Virgin Mary of Montserrat and visit the sacred shrine of the Black Madonna sculpture "La Moreneta."

Note: this tour does not include hearing the boys’ choir sing.
