Embark on a spiritual but also a quite remarkable adventure to two iconic attractions in Barcelona, Spain: the Montserrat Monastery and La Sagrada Familia. Hop on a comfortable coach which will take you to your first location at Spain's monastery on the rocky mountains of Catalonia. Get to explore the monastery and learn about the lives of the monks living in this sacred mountain. Make sure to visit Museu de Montserrat where you'll find a collection of ancient artifacts that range from Egyptian mummies to canvasses by Picasso. Witness some of the old paintings from the 13th-18th centuries by artists such as Dali, El Greco, Morales, and Caravaggio. Head back to Barcelona and visit the most beautiful and most controversial Catholic church ever built (construction is still ongoing), the Sagrada Familia. See the angled pillars sprouting like a web of tree branches, holding up the roof. Admire at the century-old church designed by Antoni Gaudí, one of the most famous figures of Catalan culture and the world of architecture. This tour to this historic sites will be a fun day filled with an appreciation for history and religion. It's something you should definitely see while visiting Barcelona.
