We purchased the tickets at Espanya a day earlier at one of the vending machines and therefore skipped the morning rush. It's a good idea to reach early as sometimes the train can fill up and you will be left with no seats to sit.
Must do while in Montserrat:
1. Ride the funicular to Sant Joan
2. Hike one of several hiking trails
3. Buy cheese
4. Listen to the choir
We packed our lunch from Barcelona and had it on one of the benches overlooking probably one of the best views of Barcelona.
We also stood in line to pay our respects to the Black Madonna. However this can take several hours.
DO remember, Montserrat is at a higher altitude so wear warm clothes.
