A MONTSERRAT GAUDI DAY TRIP

Gaudi's other church and his relationship with Montserrat​

Are you a Gaudi fan? Did you know he left a church unfinished outside of Barcelona? Have you heard of a monastery near Barcelona up in some rocky mountains? That’s Montserrat, and Gaudi worked there, too.

Montserrat is the most popular destination for a day trip from Barcelona, and the Colònia Gúell where Gaudi left the unfinished crypt is on the way there. There is a train that takes you to both of them, but organizing such an excursion on your own can be quite tricky as the train timetables are hard to combine in a reasonable manner. Plus once there you wouldn’t have anyone to explain them to you.

This is why we created this chauffeured tour that allows you to cover both sites comfortably and at a leisurely pace, and gives you a good understanding of what Montserrat and the Count Güell meant for Antoni Gaudi.

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This tour is great for people who are Gaudi fans and also want to see the Montserrat Monastery.

If you are traveling with kids, this tour is OK, but they probably would rather skip the Cripta Güell so there is more time to explore Montserrat, and then maybe have lunch by the beach in Sitges.

If you are looking forward to some hiking, I’m afraid this tour doesn’t allow for enough time. A Montserrat tour or a tour that combines Montserrat and Sitges are your best options (links above).

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, while the driver is only used for the rides between Montserrat and Barcelona, but not in Montserrat itself, the Monastery area and the basilica are wheelchair accessible and whenever there are steps they can be avoided. The Audiovisual and Exhibit, the Art Museum, the cog wheel train stations, the cafeteria, and the gift shops are accessible too. The funiculars, the cablecar and the various hike options are NOT wheelchair accessible.

If you are a Catholic, bare in mind that in this tour you’ll be arriving too late to approach the Black Madonna (you’ll see her from the distance when you enter the Basilica, though) or to attend mass.

If you aren’t a Christian, you will still enjoy this day tour if you like architecture, mountains, music and history.

If you are traveling in the winter, please note that the weather up in Montserrat is likely to be wet, cold and foggy. November through February we recommend to do Colònia Güell with Palau Güell instead. We can also custom a full day that combines Colònia Güell with Sitges or a winery.

If you have two days and want to see both sites in more detail, consider taking a Montserrat half day tour one day, and visit the Colonia Guell and Palau Guell on the next day.
