This is a fantastic place to visit. It’s free to enter but you do have to pay to park in the carpark. Attractions and facilities include, Cable car rides up and down the mountain, with breathtaking views. Theres a mountain train service on site to and from Barcelona. Two good size restaurants. Toilet facilities. Museum (paid entry). Mountain walks and hikes. The monastery itself is stunning, inside and out. The views, even from the car park are amazing. When it’s busy the car park is often full. You may have to park a mile or so down the mountain road and walk so pick your visiting time carefully if you have children. Parking along the road is free.

This was one of the most fulfilling trips I have taken. During the trip, I felt connected to the higher powers. Adding a visit to the Black Madonna heightened the experience. This was beautiful day!

This is an amazing place to visit. Beautiful scenery off-the-beaten track of big tourist masses. Very typical visit of catalan families to spend a day out. In the same day, you can visit Cim d'Aligues. Your children will enjoy it so much.

The monastery is perched on the Cliffside on a ledge of rock, which is amazing . Buildings and structures date back to the 1100s, incredible. Not the easiest place to explore, walk about , unless you are fit.
