Full-Day Girona & Montserrat Excursion

by Julia Travel - Gray Line Spain Duration 11h 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $117

Experience 2 of Catalonia's most celebrated destinations on this full-day expedition. Spend the morning strolling along the riverfront in colorful Girona, and then return to Barcelona for an afternoon outing to the mountain-flanked monastery of Montserrat.

Meet your guide near the Plaça de Catalunya and board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach for the ride to Girona—the largest city in northern Catalonia. When you arrive, hop out and follow your guide through narrow medieval streets and past the brightly colored facades of buildings along the Onyar. After the walking tour, enjoy some free time to continue visiting the medieval Jewish quarter and scope out filming locations from the hit TV series Game of Thrones before riding back to Barcelona.

In the afternoon, jump back on the bus for a scenic ride through the countryside to Montserrat, a set of jagged peaks rising craggily from the valley floor. Nestled at their base is Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey, a monastery and pilgrimage site that has drawn religious visitors for centuries. Ride into the heart of the monastery on a cogwheel train, gazing out the windows at the dramatic natural scenery.

In the abbey's basilica, get an up-close look at the Virgin of Montserrat, one of Europe's black Madonnas and the patron saint of Catalonia. Afterward, spend some time exploring at your leisure. Be sure to visit Montserrat's audio-visual museum, and don't miss a chance to sample traditional regional liquors handcrafted by monks before your return ride to Barcelona.
