A great escape from madness of Barcelona for a day. Took the Aeri up to the monastery and then the two funiculars to St Joan and down the Santa Cova line. Both are must dos for this trip. You will need good hiking boots for St Joan. Amazing views and a nice "spritual" experience if that is what you are... More

Bring your camera, the view is stunning. One of the best attractions when going out to Barcelona is taking this trip outside of Barcelona to visit this amazing site. I would even recommend taking longer to visit if you intend to explore the entire place.

Afternoon in Monsterrat was perfect especially after the Palm Sunday mass at La Sagrada Familia at noon. We had just enough time to grab a quick bite after the mass to get to the travel agency office where the tour met at 3pm.

Rained on and off and the clouds covered the top of the mountain. But we got there early before the tours and the school kids and had a great look at the basilica and the sanctuary. Very beautiful. Sun would have made it even better. The cable car and cog view would have been zero so drove and paid the... More

Well worth a visit but get to the train early as they are very small and crowded and you may have to stand for the hour's trip.Basilica is magnificent but I would like to see a little more reverence from the visitors.

There are lots of helpful tips on the internet about getting to Montserrat from Barcelona. Placa Espanya is the starting point and there are signs in the station as to where you should head if going to Montserrat or just follow the signs for R5. The train from Placa Espanya to the drop off for Montserrat is about an hour... More
