We travelled the 1 hour train journey from Barcelona, Espanya station. Buy your tickets at the station and be sure to select the tickets which include the train up to the Montserrat plateau as well. Train journey very pleasant with pretty Spanish countryside, and then you get to Montserrat.....Absolutely STUNNING. If you want to visit the monastery on the plateau... More

As soon as you enter Montserrat you would probably grasp for breath a the breath taking architectural combination of black and gold decors . The view of the city is magnificent. Not to miss the cable car trip to and fro .The feel of the holy place is beautiful, serene and wonderful.It felt you were somewhere out in the Mountains... More

We used the trans Monserrat pass and enjoyed a great day here. We took,a short hike, wondered the streets and just enjoyed the views. Well worth the time!

The Serrated Mountain is breathtaking. The views from the 11th Century Monastery are not to be missed. We went to the Monastery and heard the Escolania (the famous Boys' Choir) sing their daily 10 minute performance in the Basilica.

This was a very beautiful place to see. I went when it was rainy and there was fog, and it was still beautiful. The road there is a little scary.

We had a rent car and drove here from Barcelona in under an hour. It is an amazing mountain, with incline trams that take you straight to the top where you can take some beautiful walks or even walk back down if you have the time and stamina. Great day trip from Barcelona. There's nothing quite like it.

There are several contributions about travel to Montserrat from Barcelona by public transport. The time taken is usually about 2 hours on the transport one way. If cable car is the intention from Montruil town, it's not well located from the train station. the best option is the train up the mountain. Anyway, I decided to take a half day... More

This group tour was well organised and the guide was very informative. Cost was 53 Euro PP which was well worth it due to ease of getting there. A wonderful place to visit and photograph.
