This is a 5 day course that is based close to the beautiful city of Barcelona.
March is the perfect time to explore the stunning area around the Montserrat National Park.
Montserrat means serrated mountain in Catalan and it describes the rock formations that are visible from a great distance. The mountain is composed of strikingly pink conglomerate, a form of sedimentary rock.
The monastery was built in the 11th century and legend places the finding of the statue of the Virgin of Montserrat around 880.
The hiking trails are incredible as are the views of Barcelona and the Mediterranean coast and on clear days even the island of Mallorca. We take time to explore the monastery and art gallery as well as ascend the via ferrata (a series of iron rungs bolted into the cliffs).
