Day 1 Barcelona

We will begin our day driving out of Barcelona towards Cardona. Once we arrive, we will see the famous salt mountain that grows larger in diameter every year. Then, we will continue to Cardona Castle, where a modern fortress was built on the site of an older castle, blending distinct architectural styles. We will explore the interior of this amazing castle and learn about the history of the Dukes of Cardona, the "crownless kings." Afterwards, we will enjoy brunch before traveling to the mountain of Montserrat. To get to the top of the mountain, we will take a cog-wheel train, which brings us to the magnificent Royal Basilica at the summit. This building contains a famous 12th century Romanesque carving of the Black Madonna. The site has attracted pilgrims since its foundation in 1025. We will be able to enjoy a detailed audio-visual exhibition about the history and creation of Montserrat. Afterwards, we will take a short walk to the hermitage of Saint Benet. If we are fortunate, we will have the chance to hear them perform. Early in the afternoon, our guide will take us on an exclusive visit to the Sacristy built by the architect Fracesc Folguera. To end the day, we will find a nice spot outside to enjoy brunch and enjoy a little free time before returning to Barcelona.
