Montserrat Mountain

This mountain is located 50km northwest of Barcelona and thanks to its spectacular 1236m height and strangely rounded rock pillars, shaped by wind, rain, and frost, Montserrat is a sight you shouldn't miss.

Montserrat is the spiritual heart of Catalonia and the best opportunity to enjoy awesome scenery and beautiful landmarks. Its caves and many mountain paths offer breathtaking rambles, reachable by funicular.

Montserrat Experience: Skip The Line
The audioguide and documentation given are very useful and to be followed. It helps to understand and appreciate all the different elements. Even if there are in my opinion some misalignments in the audio-guide. Also the audio-visual introduction to the site could be much more developed, informative and complete. If you can, try to go to Montserrat on a sunny day if you want to appreciate the environment, landscape, and very specific mountains that the site offers. The museum is worth it, really interesting, with great pieces of art to be seen - think of booking approx 1h30 of your time for the museum itself if you are keen on appreciating the paintings of famous painters.

Montserrat From Barcelona + Museum: Roundtrip
This attraction is definitely worth it. The views from atop the massifs are breathtaking.
Tip: When you get to the Montserrat, don’t wait in queue to view the Black Faced Madonna. Just go up Funicular de Sant Joan and explore the mountain tops. You can go back to the Montserrat in afternoon when there are no lengthy queues

This is a must see day-trip out of Barcelona. The trip by train was very interesting and the Museum and Cathedral were fascinating.

Great place to go. Better than we thought it could be. Very interesting. Museum is a gem. When you go, go early and spend the day. There is so much to experience. The whole structure is magnificent. The views and personnel are great. We drove. Very quick from Barcelona. However, if you have the time and skill to work the train schedules that would be fun.

We had a great time in montserrat/ the ticket gave us access to the train from
Barcelona station and from the railway line to Montserrat. People were helpful everywhere and the tickets recognized easily. We were surprised by the great buffet included and loved the museum with works from
Monet, Picasso, renoir and lots of Spanish painters from the time. You need to match the train from
Barcelona with the time slot you choose to see the museum but it was explained in our tickets and we were told the time we needed to be at station in Barcelona.//We waited hiked up in the mountains ( ticket does not include cable car to the top) and managed also to touch the miraculous Virgin statue with no line( at 4:00 you can see the madonnabtoll 4:30) and later on around 6.The mountains are impressive and we were amazed that such a small place could contain so many people. The tickets did make things easier for us.
