Description

Journey into the heart of Spain's visually stunning Catalonia region on this small-group, half-day tour to Montserrat. Explore museums, walk down scenic paths, and take in the unique skyline. Then top off your day back in Barcelona with tapas and an exciting flamenco show.

Enjoy Skip-the-Line admission at the Sagrada Família complex, a large Roman Catholic church that's designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then make your way to Montserrat, the monastic centre of Catalonia. Its jagged peaks and peculiar rock formations form a serrated, saw-like skyline that's instantly recognisable.

Visit the sanctuary where a statue of the Virgin of Montserrat, who is also the Patron Saint of Catalonia, is housed. Enjoy an opportunity to visit the fascinating Museum of Montserrat, whose collections include Archaeology, the Biblical East, Modern Painting and Sculpture.

Spend the rest of your time exploring the scenic walking paths that weave their way past chapels and historical icons. Or see the remainder of the area by railway or cable cars.

Back in Barcelona, begin your tapas tour with a stroll to Eixample, one of the city's modern bars. Take a seat and watch the chef prepare Catalan favourites, including pa amb tomàquet (bread with olive oil and tomatoes) and patates bravas (potatoes with oil, red pepper and chilli, served with aioli). Sample freshly prepared tapas as you learn about the history and flavours of Catalan cuisine.

Next, head to the Born district, where you visit a locally loved ham shop. Head inside and sample some of the best meats and cheeses, including serrano ham and manchego cheese. Continue past Barcelona Cathedral and the old Roman city walls, before meandering through the Gothic Quarter to arrive at Plaça Reial.

Visit one of the oldest flamenco bars in Barcelona where the highlight of your evening awaits—an exciting flamenco show. Sipping on a welcome glass of cava, soak up the atmosphere and prepare yourself for a night of tapas, dance, and song.

Montserrat was an experience for a lifetime. Amazing place and views. Boys choir was another beautiful unexpected experience.
