Gaudi Crypt was worth while to visit.
I've been in monastry of Monserrat several times before, at this time I spent most of time in hiking.
The view from the mountain was great. I was sorry I had only 4 hours free time in mosserat including lunch time.
This day trip to Montserrat and Colonia Guell was fantastic because of the knowledge and friendliness of our guide. A comfortable bus ride, plenty of free time, and a most accomodating and enthusiastic guide.
We certainly received much more than I was expecting from the tour. Everything from the Cava at Colonia Guell to the boys choir at Monserrat was very enjoyable and interesting. The day was paced perfectly. Our guide, Carlos, was fabulous! He was very knowledgeable, upbeat, and made sure that we understood his directions and explanations. He gave us great tips throughout the day about what to see and how to best avoid the crowds. Great day!
Great tour. Beautiful places!
Montserrat and the rail rack ride were great. Well worth seeing the basilica and surround art works. The highlight of the tour for me, though, was seeing Gaudi's crypt currently used as a church. Beautiful and inspiring. Definitely recommend. .
The guide of this tour was amazing. The site was also fantastic and a must see.
The overall trip experience was enjoyable. It's quite an experience and fun taking the almost vertical train up to the very top of the mountain. The only heads up is that lunch takes place at Montserrat and the options are very limited as there are only a couple cafes up there.
This was a really nice tour. An amazing tour guide, Olga, who is really eager to share her love to her country with the group. Colonia Guell is off main track, but with Olga's help this where I started to understand Gaudi, his innovation in architecture and structural design. MOnserrat was also very interesting, and the tour to the boys' school building was impressive. I would highly recommend this new tour.
I loved this tour. Anything Gaudi designed is truly other worldly and so worth seeing. Like the Gaudi crypt. Truly beautiful. Montserrat was magical, spiritual and the views stunning. The monastery is impressive and highlight was listening to boys choir and then guided through their school.
Besides the Monastery, Montserrat offers a splendid Natural Park. The Gaudi Crypt gave a glimpse into Gaudi's incredible architecture, as we had not seen Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative. We also had a local guide from Montserrat who gave us a tour of the school in the Monastery.
