Worth the trip outside the city.
Lovely views and monastery. The road there is up the mountain , narrow and with lots of turns. If you are not brave enough to drive there you can catch a tour bus.
The area has two restaurants you can purchase food and drinks.

The journey to and from the monastery was more interesting than the monastery itself which seemed to be more focused on tourist shops than the spiritual. Glad we made the effort to go but out of everything we did in Barcelona this was the most dissappointing.

We rode the clog railway to the area of the mountain where the Abbey and Cathedral are located. We saw the Black Madonna and enjoyed the views of the mountain and the valley below. Very impressive place!

We had a private tour (29 in the group) to see Montserrat.
What an experience! This is a must do! If you aren't too afraid of heights (driving on the way up), then you should do this tour.
The road is steep and windy on the way up!
Our English speaking tour guide, Abel Brassi, was exceptional!
Montserrat has GOT to be one of the "wonders" of the world. I am still in awe of the magnificence of the place and the "feeling" of being there.

You may have to wait in line to see the Black Madonna.

Went with the Castlexperience tour group to tour Montserrat a magnificent sanctuary carved into the mountain. We then visited a family owned winery Oller and toured the vinyards. They provided an excellent Catalan meal. The organic wines were outstanding! The tour guide Marabel was very informative.
