What shall I see

Come with us on this half day trip from Barcelona to the mountain of Montserrat, which rises majestically to 4,051 feet (1,236 m). The rocks of Montserrat were formed by natural cement of sand during the centuries and the wind and rain shaped the mountain with strange and varied forms. You will have the opportunity to enjoy in some of the most wonderful and breathtaking views of the Montserrat Mountain. You will go up to Montserrat with the Cog – Wheel Train which takes about 15-minutes, and leaves you in the middle of the Monastery. The train has panoramic windows which make the actual journey an interesting attraction. The train is air-conditioned and they are completely wheelchair-friendly. You will visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th century Romanesque carving of Verge Moreneta (the Black Madonna). You will be able to see this famous statue of the Black Madonna from a distance. The Benedict sanctuary of Montserrat has been founded in 1025 and provides a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia who is enshrined in the monastery's Royal Basilica. The little monastery soon began to receive pilgrims and visitors who contributed to the spread of stories of miracles and wonders performed by the Virgin. Today, Montserrat has been modernized to continue attending to the needs to pilgrims, one thousand years after it was originally founded. You will be given some free time to visit the audiovisual exhibition about the history and creation of Montserrat and to taste typical liquors of Montserrat.
