B2M Montserrat Tour overview

Montserrat mountain is one of Barcelona and Spain's most popular tourist attractions with breathtaking scenery, unique rock formations and panoramic views of the Catalan countryside. This historic monastery has been perched at 726 metres height on Montserrat mountain for almost a thousand years.

Our Montserrat half-day tour visits the basilica and sanctuary of the Virgin Mary of Montserrat which is home to the Black Madonna sculpture "La Moreneta." The tour includes a hike up to St. Michaels Cross (around 20 minutes walk each way with some steep inclines).

To end the tour we hear the famous Montserrat boys’ choir sing in the Basilica at 1pm (The boys choir does not sing on Saturdays or during school holidays)

Please ask for earlier summer pickup of 07.15 to avoid queues in high season
