Going to Monserrat requires a day trip if you really want to spend time when you are up to the mountain, and to visit the monastery. It is worth visiting so have fun. :)

The view is amazing, only thing is that it is always crowded with tourists. If one is visiting Montserrat without planing for a hike, it is not that special. The hiking routes are great.

Came here with friends and had a private tour. This is about an hour south of the city but a very important place in the history of Catalonia. The architecture is ancient and beautifully done. And this is an important religious pilgrimage spot.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

I am taking a cruise and will be docked in port on a Friday. We have plans till 13:00 and don't leave port until 17:00, would that give us enough time to visit this? Should we join a tour or just take the trains/bus and visit by ourselves?

Train ride each way is one hour. Train leaves every hour. Too risky. However, it is a much better option than going to Gaudi church or even Picasso 's museum. All nice but this is special. Have a lovely trip!
We are arriving to Barcelona on 3/25. The weekend market sounds interesting, would it be worthwhile for us to visit on that first Saturday before Easter? I understand it is a holiday weekend, and things may be closed. Alternatively, could we visit on Monday 3/28? Thank you!

I'm sorry, but I don't know anything about the weekend market. We were there for 2 nights during the week.
Would the walking be easy for elderly people? Is there mass and where can I find times? is this a day trip from Barcelona? Meaning, do I need an entire day to comfortably see everything? thanks!
