What a beautiful place this is. When you get to the monastery, you will find a long line, this is the line to touch the Virgin of Montserrat, the Black Madonna, so if this is not of importance to you, just find the front door and walk right in. While the monastery is quite beautiful, it pales in comparison to the natural beauty of the mountain and naturally, is very crowded. Allow time to take the funicular de Saint Joan from the monastery to the top, then hike around and find your own place to enjoy the serenity. No wonder this mountain had held religious significance for people since pre-Christian times. Take along a picnic, something to drink, a camera and friends or family. We bought tickets at a booth on La Rambla, 27.50 euros buys a ticket on the metro, train ticket to either the cable car OR the funicular to the monastery, you must decided before you buy your ticket, unlimited rides on the funiculars on the mountain and all return tickets, quite a bargain. Trains leave every hour, it's an easy 50 minute trip and not necessary to go with a tour, unless you are more comfortable that way.
