Montserrat and Colònia Güell

The natural beauty of the rocks

On this five-hour tour, we will visit one of the least visited projects by Gaudí: the crypt of the Colònia Güell. About half way between Barcelona and Montserrat, this little church designed by the Catalan architect is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO located on the old textile estate of Santa Coloma de Cervelló. The construction started in 1908, and even though the church remains unfinished, it includes for the first time practically all of his architectural innovations.

After visiting the Colònia Güell we will continue to Montserrat. The natural beauty of the rocks of Montserrat, formed by erosion wearing down the rocks during millions of years, makes this place the perfect spot to do some hiking and admire the landscapes and unbeatable views. Since the 11th century, Montserrat has been the home of a Benedictine monastery that holds the wooden statue of La Moreneta (The Black Madonna), Catalonia’s patron saint. We will also have the opportunity to listen to the Escolania, one of the oldest boys’ choirs in Europe.

We recommend this tour in the afternoon, when it is not so crowded. It is available on weekdays.
