Again, this was part of Barcelona Day Tours (recommended by Trip Advisor) and booked through our travel agent.
We were a group of 14. This was outstanding, the views, the area, breathtaking - a must see!

Many people come here to see the monastery, I came for the hiking. The surrounding rocks are very unique!

Montserrat is one of the most beautiful places we have visited. The monastery itself is an interesting place to visit (I would just say - a bit too crowded to admire), but these are the magnificent views and the surrounding mountains that are so much worth seeing. We do recommend that you do not only see the monastery, but also take some short trips in the area. From the monastery, you can go down a bit (by a cableway) and then have a nice walk to a cave. There is also the second cableway, which goes up the monastery. From there, apart from seeing the most spectacular views possible, there are several mountain trails. Some are very short (eg. half an hour), some a bit longer, so you can choose something for yourself, depending on how much time you have, and whether you enjoy walking. The trails lead to different caves and little chapels – and the views are again magnificent. The trails are not demanding, but it is advisable to wear comfortable shoes.

Our tour left at 7:30am from our cruise ship, and I"m glad it did, because by the time we left after the tour was over the parking lots were all full and people were parking all the way up and down the road. This is a MUST SEE side trip from Barcelona, and look at the countryside and this amazing cathedral and monastery up on a craggy mountain. I did not take the funicular to the top, but it can be done. The little coffee shop in the village has pretty good food and there is a grocery store to buy supplies for picnicking at the top. Our guide told us you can rent rooms in the monastery when they have availability. I"m sure it's beautiful after all the tourists leave.

We spent about 2 hours as part of a Top Day Tour from our Barcelona cruise ship. Fantastic views and scenery. It is about 1 hour drive from Barcelona.
