What You Can Expect

Montserrat Monastery and Sagrada Familia Tour with Liquor Tasting


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.

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.

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.

The full day tour was amazing. Getting up early to travel to Montserrat was not good but being there before the crowds we were able to have a good look around and take lots of photos. The place itself is amazing. Would love to have gone on the funicular ralyway but it was only operating one way. The guide was very knowledgeable with a pleasant manner.
We had a break back in town for lunch then went on the tour of Sagrada Família. What can I say? A wonderful place with lots of time to wonder around. Another guide met us and took us through the Basillica. This building certainly has the wow factor. Whatever I say cannot do it justice. Do yourself a favour, take the full day tour and be amazed,as we were.

Tour meeting place was easy to find and very close to public transport. Tour guide was good and she gave a great run through of Montserrat. After Montserrat we had a break for lunch separately and then met out the front of Sagrada Familia With a different tour guide for that part. Sagrada Familia is the most amazing thing I have ever seen and even though the group was bigger for it and the tour guide was hard to hear she did her best to describe all the aspects and that in itself allows you to appreciate the structure of it in great detail. Lots of fun I defiantly enjoyed this and recommend travelers to do this tour.

Montserrat Monastery was fantastic! Stunning view and well worth it to go there from outside Barcelona. Sagrada Familia was beautiful and had wonderful experience.

Excellent tour. Loved Montserrat and the Sagrata Familia a must see. Tour guides were great but had difficulty with the rather heavy Spanish accent. Highly recommend this trip.
