Program

Our first stop of the day is Montserrat, Catalonia’s most emblematic mountain. Topped by a Benedictine Monastery, Montserrat is an ideal half-day trip to spend a fun day in nature, just a few kilometers away from Barcelona. On the way to the Monastery, on board of a luxury Mercedes Cabrio convertible minibus, admire the Massif of Montserrat, a spectacular multi-peaked rocky range packed of unique needle-shape formations.

Upon arrival, visit the Monastery, which was founded in the 10th century and still functions to this day, with over 150 monks. It is also well-known for hosting the figure of La Moreneta (the dark one), who is the patron saint of Catalonia. Your guide will bring history alive by explaining the history and ventures of this Monastery dating nearly a thousand years.

Next, descend to a nearby equestrian center on the Montserrat Cable Car enjoying the beautiful views on the way, located at the foothill of the Massif. Get ready for a thrilling horseback ride along the Natural Park, offering breathtaking views of Montserrat. An entertaining and original way to discover the Catalan landscape! Learn how to communicate with your horse, learn the basics of grooming and saddling and practice your riding skills. All while enjoying the freedom and tranquility of the countryside. Lead by experienced guides, the route is suitable for everyone. Enjoy the ride and the spectacular sight of the mountain!

Get back to Barcelona. A memorable experience for those nature-lovers looking to escape from the city!
