Start your day early. Leave early from Barcelona and take the train. We went to Placa Catalunya and bought our TOT Montserrat ticket (which is available with or without lunch and the transportation transfers from and to Barcelona). The views on the way up there was unforgettable. We took the Cremallera (train instead of cable car). We visited the Black Virgin Mary first which was a long line, about 1.5 hours. The cafeteria food was ok. Then we took the Funicular of Saint Joan going to the mountains above the monastery and took a scenic hike all the way to the top and walked back to the funicular that would take us back to the monastery. however, we missed the last trip. I believe the last one is at 5:30 pm. We walked all the way down which took us about 1.5 hrs. Make sure you know when the last funicular schedule. They would not make a special trip just for you.
