Journey from Barcelona to experience the natural splendor of Montserrat, Catalonia's most emblematic mountain, topped by a Benedictine Monastery - an ideal trip to spend a fun day in nature, just a few kilometers away from the big city.  Observe the area's fascinating flora and fauna.  On the way to the Monastery, admire the Massif of Montserrat, a spectacular multi-peaked rocky range of unique needle-shape formations.  Once the massif is observed from a distance, it is easier to understand the importance of this mountain when it comes to influencing the traditions and culture of the regions that surround it.

Upon arrival, visit the monastery, founded in the 10th century and still functioning today with over 70 monks.  It is also well-known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta (visit not guaranteed), who is the patron saint of Catalonia.  Your guide will bring history alive by explaining the nearly thousand year history of the monastery.  A bus will then take you to a farmhouse where you will have a delicious farm to table 3-course lunch; first course salad, second course combination of barbecue (vegetarian and halal option) and dessert with stunning views.  The plans and terraces of the Farmhouse have been cultivated for hundreds of years.  At present there are 2,700 trees of the varieties in the area, which are the Palomar and the Vera.  After this full day of adventures you will return to the center of Barcelona by private transport.
