“A Great Escape from the City”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

This was a great way to get out of the city for a couple of hours and really enjoy a country view. The drive out was not too long and a bit harrowing as the bus climbs the mountain but it is all worth it in the end. The views from up there are breathtaking. Whether you are looking out at the Spanish countryside or looking at the spectacular community that is built into the side of the mountain, it is a must see. The only negative for me was the tour bus had both English and Spanish people and the guide was describing sights and monuments in both languages and she was hard to follow at times.

“Must visit if in Barcelona”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Took a train from Placa Espanya - bought a combined train and Aeri cable car ticket - its about an hour away. The scenes were amazing - only thing was we left late in the afternoon so only got a short amount of time to spend there. There are great walks up there so do allow yourself more time. Feel gutted.

“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.
