Full description
After 50-minute drive from Barcelona we first visit the Benedictine Abbey, first built on the 11th century and home to Catalonia’s Patroness Saint, The Black Madonna, a strong symbol of spirituality and unity for the local people. After, we hike up to the top, from where we enjoy the stunning views from the Natural Park of Montserrat and the rest of Catalonia from a bird´s eye view. Mediterranean Sea, main valley of the country and the Pyrenees further away, drawing the border with France. During the hike we will walk on the same paths used by pilgrims hundreds of years ago, we will get inspired by Montserrat’s fascinating flora and fauna and we will experience unique ways where rocky pillars and ravines show us how inner mysterious water emerge from the hidden and undiscovered very center of the massif. Back down in the Monastery area, we have some free time where you can browse amongst regional products in the local farmer’s market before we head back to Barcelona.

We were a small group of three when we went there and Uni took a very great care of every one of us. He was punctual for the pick up, told us lots of interesting facts during the drive and tried to accommodate to everyone's fitness level during the hike. We also got some free time to roam around the place for a quick lunch and some souvenir shopping etc. Plus Uni is a great conversationalist, so he'll make you feel comfortable in no time. As a female solo traveller I highly recommend this experience to others!

This half day hiking tour was excellent, it leaves early so you avoid a huge amount of crowds that might make your day less pleasant. The hike is not difficult for fit people but it was excellent way to do some exercise while having fun. The guide was very friendly and explained everything about this magnificent place. He took some nice pictures during the hike and also offered water to all people while answering any questions.

Perfect. Worth every cent. On top of that, our guide, Uni, was very attentive, punctual and had good information about the local history. We recommend.
