Description

This daytrip to Montserrat is a chance to escape the city craziness of Barcelona and satisfy your craving for calm. At the top of a distinctive mountain (its name means "Serrated Mountain" in Catalan) you'll see some spectacular art, mooch about one of Catalonia’s most magnificent places, and even enjoy a spot of liqueur tasting.

You'll hop on the train from Barcelona's Plaza España to the FGC train station, climbing over 600 meters as you journey through gorgeous mountain surroundings to this spiritual shrine, and what's perhaps the epitome of Catalan culture.

When you're at the top, check out the audio-visual wonder that is Montserrat Behind Closed Doors. Learn about the monastery's heritage, the sanctuary and the mountains, and browse paintings by luminaries like Berruguete, El Greco, Caravaggio, Fortuny, Rusiñol, Casas, Nonell, Picasso and Dali, from the 13th through 20th centuries.

Say hello to the 12th century Virgin of Montserrat Basilica (Black Faced Madonna), and learn about the truths and mysteries surrounding her. (Hint: it started, as all good stories do, with some shepherd boys). You might have to queue for this privilege - 20 to 40 minutes is normal in the morning - but you can look forward to a drink for your efforts afterwards - there's that liqueur tasting to be done at the Montserrat shop, (hic!)

This one of the must see attractions of Barcelona. Don't miss it. The views are glorious and the museum fascinating. We used the audio guide. I would highly recommend that.The ticket includes some nice extras, like a liqueur tasting and the museum audio guide.

Everything started perfectly, from the beginning when we received our tickets and information at Plaza Espana at FRG office, and later. Train was on time. The visitors office at the Monastery was very polite we got information, booklets and as a surprise the liquer tasting.

We had a fantastic day. We were on the underground then bus then train then another train up the mountain there were plenty staff showing us where to go, they were fantastic on there each timing of where we were suppose to be went like clock work. Puts us to shame when our trains are of its total manic.
Would recommend this trip xxxx

Enjoyed Montserrat, wish we spent less time in museum and restaurant and more on mountain but was a rainy and cold day. Museum had some great art and artifacts but nothing on history of monastery. Enjoyed the funicular but cloud cover kept us from seeing much.
