The Montserrat Cog Wheel Tour is a half day excursion from Barcelona Cava Tour with pick-up at the hotel, tour in the cog wheel train, visit to Monterrat and drop off at the hotel in Barcelona.
Over the years Montserrat has been the goal not only for thousands of pilgrims. Architects like Antoni Gaudí and Jean Nouvel have been inspired by the unique forms of the rocks and by the beautiful natural park on the mountain. So you will be able to recognize the special forms of the mountain rocks in several buildings in Barcelona.
On a shiny day you will be able to see Barcelona from the top of the mountain, and if the sky is clear it is even possible to see all the way to Mallorca from atop the mountain. But furthermost, on the mountain you will be able to see the incredible monastery built over centuries and the Black Madonna ("la moreneta" as locals call her), the goal of thousands of pilgrims for centuries. If you come at the right time you will be able to hear the boys' choir sing - the choir is the oldest of its kind in the world.
