I took so many great photos in this place. Stunning views that are definitely breathtaking. A bit far from Barcelona but it’s worth visiting and going there for the afternoon. We went there by train. A must see.

Amazing view from the Catalonian mountains and absolutely serene atmosphere as well. No doubt it's worth a visit while in Barcelona and do not miss the choir at the church. The colourful candlelight offerings are wonderfully displayed and well arranged.

Very calm and beautiful place. Besides the church, there is a restaurant that offers a wide variety of delicious food. There is also a museum, a souvenir store, hotels, mini-market, train station and a parking lot.
