“wonderful views, history, long line for Madonna”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

This is yet another beautiful European church, but this one sits high on a hill and has a funicular that leads up to a hill with great views. Note, if you want to see the Black Madonna, get there early or get in line while the church is closed during the morning service. We waited almost an hour to see it.

“Give yourself time for the cable car”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Obviously a great location and a difficult hike to the top where ever that is but on the whole well worth a visit. Restaurant a bit chaotic and cable car 1 hour wait

“Great day outside of the busy city.”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Enjoyed the landscape. Listened to the boys choir at 1pm, so if you time your to hear their voices fill the church. We were there on a very cool and windy day, so plan your clothing and follow the weather bulletins.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We did the big hike and it was worth it. Sadly, the museum's collection (the good stuff) was almost completely in Italy. Bring your own food, though. We loved it. If you have had enough of the big city, do this.

“Beautiful Gem very close to Barcelona”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

This place is great. Just an hour's drive from Barcelona. The drive itself is very comfortable. There are lots of things to do at Montserrat. There is a monastery and a couple of restaurants on lower level. For enthusiasts there are trails to top of mountains. They even have a funicular to take you to top of mountain, the views from where are fantastic. It is very well worth an afternoon trip from Barcelona
