Montserrat Boys Choir Performance Schedule

We cannot leave Montserrat without watching the boys choir. Can you give me the schedule to plan better? One day is all we have with so much to see in Montserrat.

Buy Tot Montserrat or Trans Montserrat Pass?

What is the difference between TOT Montserrat and Trans Montserrat passes? Which one is the best pass for going to Montserrat from Barcelona?

The Serrated Mountains

Montserrat literally means ‘serrated mountain’, a perfect description given the jagged cliffs of the mountain. At the top of the mountain is the beautiful Santa Maria de Montserrat, a Benedictine abbey, one of the most famous popular Christian destinations in Catalonia for over 1,000 years as its Black Madonna is said to have been given by St. Peter.

Santa Maria de Montserrat also houses a museum displaying Caravaggio’s St Gerome and works of other famous Spanish artists like Dali, Picasso, Ribera, and Sorolla. The Escolania, Montserrat’s Boys’ Choir, is one of the oldest in Europe and performs during religious ceremonies and communal prayers in the basilica. Apart from the abbey, the other key attraction is the well-marked beautiful hiking trails around the Montserrat natural park.

If you are looking to take a day trip from Barcelona, Montserrat should be right on the top of the list.
