Itinerary

Barcelona Sightseeing Tour Including Montjuic Cable Car: (4.5 hours)
Start your morning sightseeing tour with a stroll through Plaza de Catalunya; admire its many fountains and statues, and then wander along the narrow medieval streets of the Gothic Quarter. As you walk, your guide will explain interesting details about Barcelona’s historical sites. See many buildings from the 15th century, including Barcelona Cathedral, as you continue to Plaza Sant Jaume, where important government buildings are located, including the Palace of Generalitat and the Town Hall.

Next, board a coach and take in views of the Mediterranean Sea and Barcelona’s coastline on the drive to Montjuic, a hill near the coast that features many attractions. Pass the Olympic Village (Vila Olimpica), which was home to athletes during the 1992 Olympics, and drive by Port Olympic. Continue up Montjuic for a panoramic view of the city and harbor, and then enjoy a tour of Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium, the Palau Sant Jordi and Calatrava Tower. Next, visit the Spanish Village (Poble Espanyol) to see architecture and traditional crafts from different regions of Spain.

Finally, board Montjuic cable car and take in aerial views of Barcelona landmarks such as La Sagrada Familia as you ride down the hill to Montjuic Castle. Admire the castle from the outside, then head back to central Barcelona, for a short lunch break (own expense).

Montserrat Royal Basilica Tour and Cog-Wheel Train Ride: (4.5 hours)
After driving through picturesque little villages, arrive in the small town of Monistrol to hop aboard your cog-wheel train for your 20-minute ride through the mountains. Gaze out at the glorious scenery, and hop out on the craggy mountain of Montserrat, a peak that rises to roughly 4,051 feet (1,235 meters).

The Royal Basilica of Montserrat has been one of Spain's most important pilgrimage sites for hundreds of years, due to its famous 12th-century Romanesque carving of the Virgen Moroneta (the Black Virgin). On weekday afternoons, there is the opportunity to hear one of Europe's oldest children's choirs: La Escolania de Montserrat.

After hearing an introduction to Montserrat from your guide, learning about its importance in past and present times, use your free time (roughly two hours) to explore independently and discover the site’s magic on your own. Then, meet back up with your guide to enjoy a tasting of four typical Montserrat liquors and learn more details about the site by watching the 'Montserrat Inside Closed Doors' video, at the visitor's center. Later, travel back to Barcelona by coach.

This was a very full tour. I was a little confused because they were actually separated but everything worked out well. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and nice. They provided bathroom breaks and water breaks as needed. Montserrat was amazing and well worth the trip! Very beautiful!

This tour was well worth it. Plenty time of free time on the tour to for you to get some of your own exploring in. The guide we had (Fernando ) was absolutely brilliant. This is actually 2 tours with a break of about 1hr 45 mins in between which gives you plenty of time to refuel between pick ups.
