Description

I will pick you up at 8:30 am and we will head directly to the famous monastery of Montserrat. From a far distance, you will be able to spot the unusual shape of the Montserrat mountain range that was declared a natural park in 1987.

We will then embark on our gentle hiking route around the mountain, whilst admiring amazing views. Our circular route will lead us to several hermitages, where monks use to live and retire in the past times. We will also pass by the largely pointed spears and rounded rocks that resemble certain animals and characters with a little bit of imagination. We will also observe the typical Mediterranean vegetation characterised by dense oak tree forest and if we are lucky we will spot the iconic wild goat of Montserrat or a vulture gliding on the ascending hot air while searching for its prey.

At the end of our walk, we will visit the famous monastery with “la moreneta”—the black virgin saint—whose appearance at this sacred place resulted in the birth of the monastery. After having spent a fantastic and active morning in Montserrat, we will return to Barcelona. The entire experience will take about six hours.
