One of our great free activities is a day trip to Montserrat.
Over the years, the monastery of Montserrat has always played a very important role in the cultural life of Catalonia.
There are mini walks to keep you entertained all day. For example:
The Sanctuary route: leads us around the most important monuments and areas in the Sanctuary of Montserrat. No one wishing to discover the very heart of Montserrat should miss this tour, which takes visitors to the basilica and to worship Our Lady, as well as enabling them to discover architectural and sculptural heritage that illustrates Montserrat’s history.
The Santa Cova route: Twisting and turning, this route, which rewards visitors with splendid panoramic views, is flanked by monuments symbolising the Mystery of the Rosary. These monuments form the most important group of outdoor Modernist (Art Nouveau) sculptures in Catalonia, ending at the Santa Cova, a chapel built into the rock where, according to legend, shepherds found the image of Our Lady. There are no difficulties along this walk apart from a steep ascent along one stretch, which can be avoided by taking the funicular railway.
Reserve your bed now and join us on a day trip to Montserrat.
