Montserrat Monastery - Does it get cold in the mountains?

Simpe question really. We ar going back to Barcelona in second week in September, hoping to do.see some of things we didn't on our last trip. One of these is a trip out to the Monastery in Montserrat. I just wonder if there will be much of a tempreature difference beteween the mountain and downtown Barcelona and whether warm clothing is advised? I gues it would be best to try and check the local weather when we are there?

Jem:

I have been to Montserrat 5 times through the years. It was always cold when I went there and many times there was a strong wind. So bring a warm coat. Do not forget to see the underground museum, which is one of the best art museums in Spain.

Their stores are very good. We collect angel sculptures and we found many here.

Depends I guess. We went in september and it was really hot. Had to wear short and vest as did most folk. Just been this week and it was hot, but with a nice breeze.

If its a hot day itl be pleasant up there, if its cloudy it might be nippy. Judge on the day
