Visit two of Barcelona’s highlights on a full-day tour to Monserrat Monastery and Sagrada Familia, a pair of religious sites founded more than 1,000 years apart. Explore art and archeology in the Museum of Montserrat, tour the dramatic monastery, then learn the history and design behind Gaudi’s Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. This full-day tour includes entrance fees and a liqueur tasting, with round-trip transport from Barcelona’s Plaza Catalunya.
  • Full-day tour of two religious sites from Barcelona
  • See the 1,000-year-old monastery and museum
  • Taste locally made liqueur
  • Visit the UNESCO-listed Sagrada Familia
  • Learn about history, art, and architecture
  • Entrance fees included
Meet a guide on the Plaza Catalunya for an early departure, then travel to Montserrat Monastery, 37 miles (60 kilometers) northwest of Barcelona. Upon arrival at the monastery, visit the Museum of Montserrat, whose collections include art and artifacts from the monastery’s long history.

You’ll see paintings from the 13th through the 18th centuries, including works by El Greco, Caravaggio, and Berruguete. The tour of Montserrat Monastery also includes a liqueur tasting—like many European monasteries, Monserrat once produced a distinctive herbal liqueur. Following your time at Montserrat Monastery, make the return trip to Barcelona, where you’ll have free time for lunch.

After lunch, meet back to visit the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, the magnificent cathedral that Antoni Gaudi designed with a characteristic blend of Gothic and Art Nouveau Styles. You’ll explore the outside and inside of the cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and learn about the symbolism that’s woven into the building’s design. This full-day tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point at Plaza Catalunya.

Highly recommended.

Montserrat Monastery was beautiful. Great architecture, along with the murals, stained glass, and all that goes into these old cathedrals. The mountain views and walking paths provided an opportunity to appreciate the area and Monastery from multiple sites. We ended up passing on the Sagrada part of the tour.

Very well organized and well worth the money.

This is a great combo. Monserrat was amazing. It had snowed the night before so the roads were difficult to deal with but the bus driver knew what he was doing and performed perfectly. The views are outstanding. Then the tour at Sagrada Familia was great. cut the line was key. Tour guide was excellent and knowledgeable. But it was a bi-lingual tour so it took twice as long as it needed to be. Also if people took the option to go up to the tower the rest of the group basically waited. They showed us some other stuff that was less interesting during this time but went over it again briefly for the others when they returned from the tower. I would recommend that they do the tower after the tour was done so if people wanted more free time they could have it or if they were done they could leave while the tower portion took place.

The trip to Montserrat was fine. Guide was nice and knowledgeable. However, having to wait over 2 hours between drop off back at Catalunya and then taking a metro to Sagrada was inconvenient. In addition, the Sagrada tour was given in both Spanish and English which meant one needed to stand through both explanations to get through the tour. The tour should be in only one language.

The trip up to Montserrat was lovely. I would do this leg of the trip solo and not include it with La Sagrada Familia. We were up very early to drive up to Montserrat, which took about 1 hour. We arrived sometime around 7:45am-8:00am. The bus left to return at 11:45am so it really want a full day there at all. Only about 4 hours. The tour guide took us around and did a good job but we had no time to do any of the walks. Truth be told, it was too cold regardless. But if going during a warmer season, you may want this option. Then the tour of La Sagrada Familia didnt begin until 3:00pm, in which we had to provide our own transportation to get there and just meet the guide at the site. The tour was in Spanish and English, which meant that the tour guide had to say everything twice. So the time that he was touring in Spanish, we just stood around and waited. You are much better off buying tickets for an audio tour on your own. Definitely not worth it. They should have the tours in all languages but they should not be done at the same time. Very disappointing.

This tour was amazing!

A wonderful surprise! Couldn't appreciate the early morning departure until seeing the sunrise atop Montserrat. Breathtaking views, very comfortable ride with knowledgeable and energetic guide. Sagrata Familia in it's vastness and age still contrast the traditional european cathedrals with modern art and architecture. A well run tour with private listening devises that allows everyone to hear the history even in the large crowds.

tour guide ok but have had better. did not feel that safe with bus driver for Montserrat. The guide for Sagrada started good very good But half way through got very very boring way too much technical could have cut it down somewhat to keep it interesting
