Visite dos destacadas atracciones durante una excursión de un día desde Barcelona a la Colonia Güell y Montserrat. Descubra una obra menos conocida de Antoni Gaudí, la cripta de la Colonia Güell. Subirá a lo alto de Montserrat en tren cremallera, desde donde disfrutará de unas fabulosas vistas, y visitará la abadía benedictina de la montaña. Esta visita parcialmente guiada le da tiempo de sobra para explorar a su gusto ambas atracciones.
A great day out - although we did feel it was a little long...didnt need to have quite so much time at Montserrat.
Great to be able to skip the queues and see the Black Madonna...........a little to long wondering through the school boys choir dormitory.
Unfortunately they were on school holidays when we were there so didnt hear/see them sing.
This was one of the best day trips during our 2-week trip to Spain. Laila, our tour guide, was exceptional! She explained everything very well and was very much conscientious of the needs of the people in the tour. The tour is well-organized. Everyone is given a one-way bluetooth headset so that you can hear clearly the guide speaking.
Colonia Guell was pretty interesting. The church was amazing. The church is a Gaudi masterpiece that you don't hear often but it's worth a visit.
Montserrat was wonderful! I think we were lucky because there weren't too many people. It was just unfortunate that the Montserrat boys choir was on break the week we came it was a week after Holy Week and they sang non-stop during Easter week so this was their scheduled break. We had an exclusive tour of the facilities of the boys' choir school and we didn't have to line-up to see the Black Madonna. After the tour, we literally came out just beside the huge altar and had an unobstructed view of the altar and 1PM prayer.
We had a terrific tour. The balance of guided time versus free time was perfect, both at the Colonia and at Montserrat. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and enhanced our appreciation of both destinations. It was a delight to hear the boys choir sing. I recommend this tour highly.
This is a trip not to be missed. While there are a multitude of trips to Montserrat I didn't see any other trips that included Colonia Guell and the Gaudi Crypt, indeed I hadn't heard about the Gaudi Crypt but would highly recommend it if you have the chance to go. The crypt had all the components of La Sagrada Familia. Montserrat itself is beautiful. I would highly recommend the art gallery as the collection is really amazing.
If you are looking to join an organised tour to Montserrat then this is the one to get.
The works of Gaudi intrigue me and seeing the Gaudi Crypt and having his works and imaginations explained to us by our tour guide were so impressive. I would have liked more time in the town though to really appreciate it. The views driving up to Monsterrat have to be seen to be believed. We experienced a real treat at the school. We not only had a closeup of the students singing and the black Madonna but we were also given an inside tour of the boys school. A really great experience
I sent my parents and my 8 and 9 year old children on this tour. They came back raving about their day. Their tour guide Alex was very informative and they had exclusive access to a few things that many other tours did not provide. They loved hearing the boys choir sing. They were also very intrigued by the things they learned in Colonia Guell. They had packed a lunch to bring with them which made it possible for them to make the most of their free time. They truly had a wonderful experience.
Brilliant trip. From colony Guell and Gaudis crypt to the thrilling train trip up Montserrat and the spectacular view, from the beautiful singing of the boys choir to the wonderful guide Lyla that gave us the background to what we were seeing and answered every one's questions this trip was amazing. We also visited the art gallery at Montserrat which was interesting. It did rain so we didn't climb any higher than the monastery but we were able to appreciate the view before the rain. Well worth doing. We also visited the black Madonna and I found it quite moving.
