Take in the spectacular scenery while participating in a one-of-a-kind experience and learning the basics of horseback riding. In a small group trip, have a good time and enjoy the personal approach. A half-day excursion to Catalonia's most famous mountain. Montserrat, which is topped by a Benedictine Monastery, is an excellent half-day trip for a delightful day in nature just a few kilometers outside of Barcelona.

Admire the Massif de Montserrat on your route to the Monastery, a stunning multi-peaked rocky range full of distinctive needle-shape formations. Visit the Monastery upon arrival, which was founded in the 10th century and still operates today with around 70 monks. It is particularly well-known for housing the image of La Moreneta, Catalonia's patron saint (visit not guaranteed). After the tour, you will have free time to shop for souvenirs, take photos, and so on.

Next, get ready for a thrilling horseback ride along the Natural Park, offering breathtaking views of Montserrat. All while enjoying the freedom and tranquility of the countryside. Lead by experienced guides, the route is suitable for everyone. Enjoy the ride and the spectacular sight of the mountain!
