The road trip from the Gothic Center of town was a little over an hour. But it was worth it! We have all our favorite pictures from here, the views are amazing and the history of this spot is truly amazing! A true step into history.

We enjoyed our trip to Montserrat. The old monastery has largely been rebuilt but is worth a visit. one of the black Madonnas is viewed from the chapel. The countryside is interesting and the mountain structure is very scenic. Only and hour from Barcelona, it is a nice chance to see the Catalonian countryside. We drove in on a small... More

The trip to Montserrat from Plaça Espanya took over an hour by train but was eay to navigate. At the Plaça Espanya train station, you can buy tickets for both the train and the trip up the mountain all in one, either at multilingual ticket machines or from a desk. You have the choice of ascending the mountain either in... More

Quite amazing however the crowds are to be dealt with if you plan to go in to listen to the boys choir. Additional fees for the audio tour and the art exhibits.

Breathtaking and a must-see for anyone visiting Barcelona! The cable car ride up into the sky was well worth the incredible view and hearing the boys choir. Really incredible...

Dwarfed by the majestic mountains that surround you at the Monastery & the benedictine Abbey - I felt like I had stepped into a movie set. The Basilica is beautiful with the intricate holy sculptures - and you can even touch the sacred statue of Virgin Mary if you have the time & are willing to queue. The Abbey &... More

Really enjoyed the trip to here. The scenery up the mountain and from the top of Montserrat was breathtaking. Saw the steepest funicular ever here, had to stand and watch it. Much to see here and well the time and money to take a tour to this beautiful place.

We really enjoyed the visit to Montserrat and wish we had a few more minutes to enjoy the basilica, but we were on a tour bus and had to catch our ride with the group. The setting and the area surrounding Montserrat were well worth the trip.
