If you are looking to take a break from city life, then you will find the relaxing and serene atmosphere of Montserrat at just 50 kilometers from Barcelona to be ideal. Join me on this one day hike to Sant Jeroni (1,236 m) and reach the highest point of this amazing site!

Located near the city of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Montserrat is a peculiar and gorgeous mountain range. Every year it attracts thousands of people from all over the world as it is home to one of the most important religious sites in Spain, the Virgin of Montserrat Abbey.

However,  Montserrat is more than just a holy site. It also delights hikers and nature lovers who are seeking for new adventures. During this one day program, I invite you to follow me to the highest summit of Montserrat: Sant Jeroni (1,236 m). From the top, you will catch spectacular views of the monastery, of the colorful countryside below and on clear days, you may even see Mallorca!

To get to the summit, we will first take the train that goes up to the famous Montserrat Abbey. Then, from the top station of the Funicular Sant Joan, we will follow a path that will take us to the summit of this magical spot. After enjoying the views, we will start our return and climb down through the “stairs of the poor people”.

Because this is not a very demanding trip, we welcome all people to join us, regardless of hiking experience and level. Of course, you will need to be physically fit for the ascent. The hike can be done all year round, but it’s more enjoyable during autumn, spring and winter. In summer we can take the train to St Joan that will save us 40 minutes of hiking under the sun.

So are you ready to reach the highest point of Montserrat? Then send your request and join me on this one day hike where you will discover this stunning  Catalonia landmark.
