    What to Expect
    Depart from your Barcelona hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and gaze at the spectacular scenery as you travel towards to Monastery of St Maria of Montserrat. Admire the dramatic mountains and dense pine forests then disembark on arrival at the sacred structure. Hailed as one of Spain’s most prominent pilgrimage sites, the Monastery of St Maria is an ancient and alluring landmark founded in 1025.

    Delve into the fascinating history behind ‘La Moreneta’ (Black Madonna), a carved statue secreted in the basilica, and listen to the soul-stirring song of the choir, one of the longest established children’s choirs in Europe. Peruse the enthralling exhibits in the museum then marvel at the astounding architecture in the Holy Cave.  

    Next, relax during a scenic drive to Collbató to uncover the stalagmite-studded caverns that comprise the face of the magnificent mountain. Take a tour of the Salnitre Caves, thronged with splintering stalactites and stalagmites, and gain insight into the intriguing geology of the area. 

    Feast upon a lunch of Catalan classics (own expense) the digest your newfound knowledge on the journey back to your hotel in Barcelona.
