What You Can Expect

Barcelona Day Trip: Montserrat, Colonia Guell and Gaudi Crypt

Barcelona Day Trip: Montserrat, Colonia Guell and Gaudi Crypt

Start your day trip from Barcelona at Colonia Güell, a small worker's village built in 1882. Here, enjoy a guided visit of Antoni Gaudí's crypt, an impressive church, which Gaudí built but never fully finished. Be impressed by the stunning architecture, which is similar to Gaudí’s most famous work – the beautiful Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

Your next stop is Montserrat, a craggy mountain outside of Barcelona. Montserrat is home to a Benedictine monastery founded in the 11th century and provides a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia who is enshrined in the monastery's Royal Basilica.

Also at Montserrat, ride to the top of the mountain on the rack railway, and enjoy the panoramic views. You will have free time to explore Montserrat on your own and have lunch in one of the restaurants to taste the Spanish cuisine. Your guide will always be there to answer any questions.

An outstanding day trip. So much to see but didn't feel rushed at all. Just wished we had not booked a Saturday so we could have heard the boys choir singing. Definitely recommended.

This was really a grand day out spent looking at the Gaudi Crypt absolutely beautiful, touring the small community of Colonia Guell, and then continuing on to see the Monastery at Montserrat. After spending the previous day in Barcelona, we thoroughly enjoyed seeing these additional sights, and even seeing the countryside on the way to Montserrat was enjoyable.
