    Hi !!. I'm Francisco M, experienced local tour guide for private tours (only your group) with 7 years in the tourism industry in Barcelona. Born and raised in Barcelona. With me we will discover our most important architect Antoni Gaudi and his work, his organics, religious and masonic influences. Where he comes out with the idea of the four arm cross that coronates all his buildings with actual examples and much more. . .

  • What you will see and do

    Montserrat, the Natural Park is a multi-peaked mountain shaped by the wind and rain and that is where its name comes from, as it looks like a saw, the serrated mountain.

    Almost to the top, we find Santa Maria de Montserrat, the monastery, Catalonia's most important religious retreat. Inside the Basilica we can visit the Virgin of Montserrat (the black virgin), which is Catalonia's Virgin.

    Montserrat is an inspiration for Gaudi than he adapts in Casa Batlló and La Pedrera.

    Montserrat is about one hour drive, where we will see all the growing towns on Barcelona's outskirts, where many Barcelona have move to live.

    Once we reach the bottom of the mountain we will drive from the back to the front, to see a great scenic drive of the Mountain.

    When we reach the Parking, we will walk to one of the best bird point views of the region about 750 meters high from the seaside level and overall look of the area, then we will pass by a local stores where you can sample local food like cheese, liquors, fig cakes, membrillo (Quince), etc.

    We will then visit the Monastery and the Basilica.

    Back to Barcelona.

    Note: If you like hiking in the Mountain, please let me know and I can customize a tour with more time.
