Montserrat Sawed Mountain Monastery

Explore the ancient monastery and the surrounding flora and fauna with one of our expert guides




With one of our stellar guides, you’ll have the chance to explore the ancient monastery and the surrounding flora and fauna, while taking in the magnificent 360-degree views from atop the highest peak, accessible by ‘Sant Joan’s’ cable car. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the ‘Santa Cova’ (the “Holy Cave”, where the Virgin appeared), which you’ll also reach by cable car, or via a charming footpath, as you stroll amidst the scents and peaceful sounds of nature. Depending on the day, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the renowned Montserrat boys’ choir, whose sweet voices will whisk you away for a few brief minutes.

After visiting the sacred mountain, you’ll be our guests for lunch in a 14th Century, stone ‘masia’ along the ancient Royal Road, where the married couple who runs the establishment will serve you an upscale Catalan feast fit for kings, in your own private dining room.

The Sawed-Mountain Monastery excursion is a full-day experience, which includes 5-6 hours for touring and lunch, plus 2-3 hours of travel time.
