Monastery of Montserrat - Catalonia

Monastery of Montserrat - Catalonia

Barcelona has plenty to see and do but still, a day trip to Montserrat is well worth to do. Montserrat is located about 50 km from Barcelona or an hour's train ride, leaving from Plaça d Espanya. 

This is the most important religous retreat of Catalonia,the home of Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montserrat (known also as Black Virgin Mary) and a Benedectine Monastery.

One thing not to be missed is To listen to the famous Basilica choir boy performances in the Basilica at 13:00 daily with the exception of Christmas holidays, July and some other festive periods during the year, this performance is free of charge.

The panorama during the trip to reach Montserrat is amazing,either if you are by train or drive.

No entrance fee to visit, except parking to pay.
