|Searching for Barcelona activities that combine relaxation with exploration? Look no further than our From the Beach to Montserrat Day Adventure. To say it's a journey of discovery would be an understatement! Prepare to get totally immersed in the culture and nature of the region on a distinctive day out.
A mere 38km above Barcelona lies the massif of Montserrat. This magical mountain rises 1236 metres above sea level and is one of Mother Nature's most impressive and mystical sights. A place of pilgrimage and incredible natural beauty, it's one of the do-before-you-die Barcelona activities.
Discover twisted hills, seemingly impossibly land shapes and fascinating cave formations.
The day starts at 9.30AM with a freshly brewed cup of coffee and a bite to eat at a Barcelona beach bar.
|After refreshments you will be whisked off on a drive to the geological wonder that is the Montserrat Caves. Prepare to step into the caves that inspired some of Antonio Gaudi's mind-boggling creations! This is one of the few Barcelona activities that offer such an opportunity. You'll also learn how the mountain itself came into being.
Next on the agenda is a picturesque drive to the area's Benedictine monastery. Home to La Morenata (the black Virgin Mary) it's a site of incredible significance and a place of pilgrimage for many. Take a tour then enjoy some free time and grab a bite to eat.
Our From the Beach to Montserrat Day Adventure doesn't stop there. After the monastery, you'll be driven to Barcelona's top attraction - Gaudi's stunning La Sagrada Familia. Take the tour and make the connection between the caves and Gaudi's inimitable artistic style.
Barcelona activities wouldn't be quite right without a glass of sangria to finish! Round off the perfect day out with a glass of fruity, delicious sangria at the beach bar.
