Or would you like to go on a day trip to the surroundings of Barcelona? This private day trip is just what you and your kids have been looking for! The monastery of Montserrat is hidden between a beautiful mountain range, just one peaceful train-ride away from the city. Ask any local and they’ll tell you how much they adore this magnificent place! Your local host of choice will meet you at Plaça d'Espanya where you’ll jump on board of the train to kick of your day trip with a comfortable ride through the beautiful Catalan landscape. Along the way, your host can already share interesting facts with you about Montserrat and discuss your itinerary for the day - which, of course, you and your kids can adjust to your wishes. Upon arrival in Montserrat, you can all enjoy a fun ride up the mountain by cable-car that goes straight through the mountain range. The views are stunning and it's the best way to get to Montserrat comfortably, including the best panorama! First stop in Montserrat will be the local farmers market to see the hustle & bustle of the vendors in the morning. There's time to enjoy the local atmosphere before you continue for an easy-going hike to a viewing point on top of Sant Miquel. The view up there is absolutely stunning and you can gaze straight across the Catalonian landscape! To keep your kids feeling involved throughout the tour, your host will arrange a simple but fun game for all your family. There’s also a trip to the playground next to the monastery, a Montserrat-themed quiz with prize, and a special kid’s ice cream tasting. Cool stuff just for your kids.  After a short break to relax and enjoy the view, you can continue your way to the Santa Maria church de Montserrat. Learn all about the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia to whom the church has been dedicated. And encourage your kids to ask all the questions they want - your local host will be happy to answer.  Your last stop to end your magical day in Montserrat will be in the so-called 'Holy Cave'. This shrine has been built on a remarkable location to hide it from the Moorish invaders and not everyone knows how to find it!
