Day 2 Monastery of Montserrat

At the monastery's heart is the statue of the Virgin of Montserrat, carved in the 12th century and known as the Black Madonna. This sacred place is also home to ​the famous Montserrat Boys' Choir which, subject to timings, we may hear perform during our visit.

Day 3 Barcelona

​Just a short distance from our base in Calella is the vibrant city of Barcelona, which we'll reach via a scenic drive along the Montjuic hill on today's included excursion. After admiring beautiful views of the city and the Mediterranean Sea, we'll have time at leisure to explore. The eccentric works of the architect Antoni Gaudí are not to be missed, particularly the Sagrada Familia Cathedral, which showcases his unique and distinctive style. The city is packed with fascinating museums, traditional squares and a fantastic selection of shops. Be sure to take a stroll down the famous Las Ramblas – there is always something going on along this lively promenade – or perhaps stop at a pavement café to enjoy some tapas.​

Alternatively, you might choose to join our optional excursion to the town of Figueres – known as the home of Surrealist painter Salvador Dali – and the charming coastal resort of Roses.​
