  • Trip to Montserrat. Montserrat is a spectacularly beautiful Benedictine monk mountain retreat about one hour North West from Barcelona. Not only is Montserrat Monastery of significant religious importance but the natural beauty surrounding the monastery is simply breath taking. Another highlight of your visit to Montserrat Monastery is to listen to the famous Basilica choir boy performances of Gregorian chants and other genres of religious choral music. The performances can be heard free of charge in the Basilica at 13:00 daily (except Saturday). The Basilica is also home to the reverend La Moreneta or Black Virgin. There are two ways to reach the Monastery from the bottom of Montserrat Mountain; these are the Aeri de Montserrat cable car and the Cremallera Rack Railway train.
