Em seguida, explore a abadia beneditina Santa Maria de Montserrat e visite a Basílica Real de Montserrat para ver a famosa escultura do século 12, a Nossa Senhora de Montserrat, também conhecida como La Moreneta, (A Escura).
i love ancient history, the inside of the chuch is from the bizantine era, quite impressive, and we had a wonderful guide, i never had a mediocre italian turist guide, and Giovanna was no different, she spoke fluent english, was very knowledgable on the history of the place, and was very professional.
The your was well organized. Govana the guide was fantastic. My only complaint was that we had to make our way from the cruise terminal to Julia tour office which was an additional cost to bear by taxi Would have been better if we were given directions to use the shuttle provided at €5 to the town.
This was a great afternoon tour to Montserrat. The monastery and location are breathtaking! It was just enough time there, we got to see everything. Our guide was great...if you have a free afternoon in Barcelona I highly recommend this tour.
Good reasons to visit Montserrat*Views*Black Madonna*Boys Choir*Cog/rack Funicular railwayReasons not to take this Tour:-*There is nothing of interest on route and the guide only spends some 15 minutes with you on arrival,so no value in paying for their service.*The funicular included is not the steep and exciting Sant Joan, as you would expect, but the dull, unspectacular Cremallera. 13 Euros extra per person for the Sant Joan.*Though the brochure(online) states "all entrance fees included", the Museum is also not included. Again extra cost.*Boys Choir last performance is at 1pm, so no good for this tour.Cost of this tour for 2 people, 110 Euros.Cost effective alternative:-2 x Coach Tickets = 10.20 Euros2 x Funicular Sant Joan = 26 Euros2 x Museum entry = 14 EurosTotal = 50.20 Euros, plus travel am enables you to see the Boys Choir.Poor value, should have done better homework!!!
The trip was worth seeing but the tour guide was not much good. His iinstructions on things was poor. Other guides on the train up the mountain advised of good picture opportunities. he didn't. He left his mic on and spoke to himself not knowing everyone could hear.
Despite the long travel and no toilet stops in between, the views were immaculate from the top. Best advice i could give is to bring your own snacks as the food court up there had limited choice and food didn't taste that great. Also, bring a warm jacket as it gets really cold up there. Overall, a lovely experience
The tour guide was excellent, but for my taste, I think I would have preferred to hike part way. I thought we were going to be able to go into the monastery, but that was not allowed. There was not a lot to say and other than a beautiful view, I’m not sure what the tour was really about....
