Enjoy convenient pick-up at your centrally located Barcelona accommodations. Greet your private driver guide and enjoy the comfort of a private vehicle, as you head to Passeig de Gracia, one of the city's main boulevards.
Walk on the street's intricately paved stonework, designed by the legendary Antoni Gaudí. Shop at one of the many boutiques that line the boulevard, and admire the striking façades of the modernist buildings while listening to your guide's commentary. Snap photos of architectural masterpieces like La Pedrera, Casa Batllo, and Casa Lleo.
You'll also see the Eixample, designed by Ildefons Cerda. Pass the Hospital de Sant Pau as you make your way to La Sagrada Familia. Learn about the different parts of the building, their symbolism and the designer that created them.
Continue to the Ciutat Vella neighborhood. Stop at Arc de Triomf and the Parc de la Ciutadella, an old fortress that is now a city park. Admire the Castle of the Three Dragons or the Grief, a sculpture by the lake before walking down La Rambla to the new World Trade Center.
Next, climb Montjuïc for spectacular panoramic views. See the facilities from the 1992 Olympics, Palau Sant Jordi, and the “urban-ism” designed for the International Exhibition of 1929.
Drive 60 km northwest of Barcelona, where Montserrat stands majestically - up to 4000 feet in height. The look of this rock mass, known for the whimsical shapes of its peaks soaring through the sky, is the result of a process of erosion over millions of years. In its ascent, you will discover the most mysteriously beautiful views of Catalonia.
In the mountain, 2380 feet above sea level and surrounded by this magnificent scenery, is located the Benedictine Monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat. This visit includes the basilica, an authentic spiritual retreat center consisting of nearly a thousand years of history. It is also where you will find the Virgin of Montserrat - the “Black Madonna”. According to legend, the virgin appeared in the IX century, giving rise the hermitage of Santa Maria and its worship for centuries. Patron and symbol of Catalonia, “Black Madonna” has been venerated into a XII century Romanesque carving which is characterized by its unique dark skin, hence the nickname as it is popularly known. After visiting the monastery, a walking tour of its surroundings will allow us to enjoy the unparalleled views of this privileged environment.
