“Great ride”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

This track goes up the mountain at slightly over 45 degrees and gives great views back to the monastery.

From the top of the funicular there are great walks around the mountain tops, with wonderful views on a clear day.

“What a view”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Almost as much fun as the cable car. Views are outstanding. You know you are on a mountain side when there is steel netting over some areas to keep rocks from fall on train or track ! It is a wonderful trip down the mountain and you end up right by the train station platform to catch the train that takes you back to Barcelona :)

“St. John's Chapel”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

A short ride up to a fabulous view. It lasts about 7 minutes and at the top there's a small exhibit area that is worth visiting.

“Another must if you go to Montserrat”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

The St Joan Funicular is really a must if you go to Montserrat. If you think the monastery looks impressive from the ground, imagine how it feels to look down on it from above - just spectacular. Once at the top, there are plenty of walks, both long and short, on well-marked paths. Some are a little close to the edge for those with a fear of heights but these are easily avoided.

I couldn't go to Montserrat and not hop on the funicular.
