The Garraf Monastery and Mountain Chapels

You'll begin your journey today heading southwest out of Barcelona, before turning up to visit the Buddhist Monastery in the mountains behind the town of Garraf. After a delicious lunch at the eastern base of the mountains, we'll wind our way up into the hills to discover the beautiful towns, a secretive swimming hole, and a couple of historic chapels.

This road trip begins in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia. If you haven't been, Barcelona is one of the highlights of a trip to Spain, with fantastic architecture, delicious food, and a laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle.
It's a great idea to stay a few days in the city before taking off into the mountains, giving you time to see the sights and get to know this fascinating city.

Open Details
You might be surprised to find this gorgeous Buddhist monastery in El Garraf Nature Reserve. Tranquil and calm, the architecture is a blend of rustic Catalan farmhouse with the more recent Tibetan-style monastery. The temple is open for visitors, and well-worth a stop to break up the drive towards the Prades Mountains.
Opening Hours: Wednesday – Friday: 09:30 – 18:00 Saturday – Sunday: 09:30 – 19:00
Guided visits last 45 minutes, and are available in English. It's recommended to book your ticket in advance on the official website.
