Barcelona Day Trip: Montserrat, Colonia Guell and Gaudi Crypt

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Colonia Guell was charming , although not a show stopper place. The guide will take you through the streets, so have a look at the charming houses! The Gaudi Crypt is an unfinished Gaudi building, it is small, but beautiful none the less. All arrangements went smoothly on the way to Montserrat. It is truly beautiful there. if you want to see the Black Madonna you need to get in the line REAL EARLY. There was a line from well outside the church, through the length of the church, to the back of the church where the Madonna is. You could easily stand in the line for a couple of hours... It is also rather busy there - but there is loads of thinng to buy, and roads to walk and BEAUTIFUL views down the mountain. We had 3 hours free time there and we felt it was a bit too long... Especially in summer when it is too hot to participate in all the hiking trails.

My Review

Amazing trip. We had a wonderful host Christina l who spoke good English and Spanish. There were many walking tours with local guides in the different locations, and I felt that all of them were proud to be showing us their country. The bus and aircon was working ok, and the drivers are by law instructed to stop every two hours to rest. Take the 4 star hotel options - the only place where the 3 star is more convenient is in Granada. There the 3-star hotel is in walking distance of the charming city centre whereby te 4 star is a bit far away. There were also options for Spanish dancing in Seville and Granada. Did the Granada one but found it rather commercial - but Granada is just so charming that all was forgiven. I found Spanish people in general to very friendly and helpful.
