Catalunya Bus Turistic Half day Montserrat Tour
Bus trip from Barcelona to the magic mountain of Montserrat where you’ll be able to take a virtual tour of the monastery at the audiovisual exhibit “Montserrat behind closed doors“, and find out about the everyday life of the Benedictine community.
The audiovisual experience “Montserrat behind closed doors” gives you an insight into the significance and meaning of Montserrat. It uses state-of-the-art museum-display and audiovisual technologies to allow visitors to explore the mountain, its history and the monastery in a vivid and stimulating way.
You’ll visit the Museu de Montserrat with its wide selection of early paintings, modern paintings, archaeological exhibits, Byzantine icons and the iconography associated with the Virgin of Montserrat.
And the best way to round off your day is to visit the basilica where you’ll be able to see the image of the Virgin of Montserrat, known as the Moreneta, and listen to the boys’ choir, the Escolania de Montserrat.
