It's a nice little chapel, a short 1.5 km hike away from the monastery and at the moment you can't ride the funicular. So it may not be worth getting the Trans Montserrat ticket (just buy the Sant Joan funicular ticket separately).

This was a very nice walk to see the site where they first found the Black Madonna. The chapel is peaceful and the Madonna is beautiful. It is a good place to reflect and enjoy the stillness of the building. Highly recommend this activity.

The small chapel is downhill from the monastery and marks the spot where the black Madonna (now in the monastery) was originally found. A long walk takes you from the funicular to the chapel. Apart from the beautiful views over the surrounding valley, the walk...More

The hike down to the cave was a 10-15 min. walk from the funicular. However the return hike may be double as it is uphill.
