I have done some research and checked the main Montserrat tourist site, but couldn't get an answer to these questions:
1. Is there any way to do both Sant Joan & Janta Cova including a stop for lunch in about 5 hours?
2. Are paths and walking trails well labeled (if I decide to go up via Sant Joan and want to walk down will it be fairly easy to see the way?)
3. I want to save time on waiting in lines to buy tickets. Can I buy the following from P. Catalunya or P. Espanya: two way ticket from P. Espanya to Monistrol (for rack rail) + two way Cremallera + one way Santa Cova + one way Sant Joan? Or is it better to buy ‘TRANS MONTSERRAT - FROM Pl.ESPANYA STATION at Includes train + underground + rack train + funiculars + audiovisual show for 26 Euro.
4. Does anyone have walking itineraries for Montserrat including maps?
