We travelled with a group of people to the site. The views are fantastic. It is well worth the trip up.

This was our second time in Montserrat and we were impressed as much as the first time. The scenery is breathtaking, especially from the top of the mountain. We took Funicular de Sant Joan from Monserrat Monastery to go up and the views were totally worth it the journey. The Monastery itself is very popular as it holds the Black Madonna - Patron Saint of Catalonia.

We boarded the R5 line from Espanya station at 11.30 and we reached Montserrat by 12.30 pm, we then boarded the cable car which is very nice. After alighting at the top, we walked towards the food court. You can have good food and then head to the cathedral which is very beautiful. After Cathedral we again boarded the Funnicular ride which takes you to the top of the mountain. Do take this train as well as you get an excellent view from the top. We took back the R5 line for barcelona at 1845 hrs. It was a very nice excursion. Highly recommended.

This is a very unique experience, and worth it if the weather is good. The view is very cool, but I thought the monastery was the highlight. To see such a spectacular building in such a remote place was amazing. We didnt get to take the cog-wheel to the top, which was a disappointment, only because the line was absurd.
Overall very cool.

After much walking around Barcelona, it was nice to take a break and ride out to Montserrat. Take the cog train up to the top. The monastery is unique. Many Kodak moments. I know digital is now. The chocolate and liqueurs the monks produce are well worth sampling. Of course we took some home. You can definitely spend a day there.
