We hiked up to Saint Jeroni from the Monastery of Monserrat. The times listed in the hiking guide are true for fast walkers. If you want to take your time add another 30 minutes each way. The hike is worth the effort. There are amazing views along the way and the pinnacle is breathtaking.

Montserrat is a great place to visit stuck high above some sheer cliffs. But very touristic and crowded. You get there by a 35 minute train ride from Barcelona, then take a cog railway or aerial cable car to get up to the monastery itself. You can also hike up there from the train station at the bottom if you are in decent shape. But once you are there, you can escape the crowds by hiking further up, to the top of St. Jeroni. Looking at the cylindrical rock with sheer cliffs, you cannot imagine how you could climb it, but there is a trail to the top that is not that difficult or frightening (no drop-offs). The view back towards Barcelona and the Catalan countryside is well worth the effort required to get there. Very few people who visit Montserrat will hike beyond the monastery, so be the exception and just do it. The trail is well-marked. Allow at least three hours up and back from the Monastery.

I've spent about 4 hours riding my bike through this area and it is really stunning! Coming from the city centre you hardly have to go onto the streets, there are so many cycle lanes which makes it easy. Once in the area though, there are some ways that are blocked for cycling (officially). Nonetheless, it's a beautiful place to get a little 'lost' and wander around. Great views across the city and I def go there again!

We took the Funicular the views from the top of the mountain is breathtakingly beautiful, there is so many different walks you can do here depending on your time limits and ability , the terrain is pretty rough in patches so advisable to wear comfort and appropriate footwear, and also warm clothing as it get cold the higher you go, but even if walking is out, it’s nice to visit just for the views alone.

When the clouds lift that is. Take the green funicular train not the cable car, the train from Espanya Station has limited seating. We hiked the Sant Jeroni trail, the longer route up to 1236 m. The trail is concrete and well packed dirt, many switchbacks so moderate climbing required. The shorter St. Joan trail starting at the base of the so-named funicular runs by the Creu St. Miquel with nice views of the valley. Don’t bother trying to get a free ride down! All can be done in one day trip.
