Montserrat was one of the places my husband was looking forward to seeing when traveling to Spain. He always talked about how secluded and beautiful it was. Filled with shops, local vendors, and a beautiful Basilica. The drive from Barcelona was about 45 minutes. We were behind schedule due to protests and road closures, causing a lot of traffic, so our free time was very limited. We did get some beautiful photos before we had to take the cable car down to meet our guide. Here we are, visiting Montserrat, Spain
From there, we traveled about 15 minutes through the valley, where we took a tour via horseback on local farmland. It was a beautiful one-hour tour with some amazing views. Getting to breathe in the fresh air, and enjoy nature and each other’s company was well worth the adventure we had! I wanted more time to explore the Montserrat, but the fault was not for the tour, more so for the delays in the city to get there! Here is a link to many tours and tickets for the Montserrat, and I recommend you spend a day there!
Our favorite part?
+ Getting to buy from the local vendors who set up stands. From Jelly, to honey, and cheese, there were many options!
+ The streets were filled with wonderful smells from the restaurants, and I was so excited that Steven and I got a few snacks for the road!
+ The horse back ride through the valley with the view of the Montserrat. Truly stunning.
