    We did a track number 4. A cable car (with beautiful experience) continued in the lining to the top from where we started. Done at the station of the cable car. It is possible to reduce (and steep relief) by another great Board level. It took us just over 3 hours. Stunning views, especially at the beginning and end. Worth.

    This is a very worth while side trip to take if you are in Barcelona. Beautiful hiking trails and amazing view from the top. I was torn between join a tour and going by myself. After the trip I'd high...  more »

    Loved it. What a fantastic place. The funicular was great and the views from the top were awesome. The church is splendid. The strange rock formations are amazing.We only spent a couple of hours here and it really requires a whole day to explore everything properly.

    Visiting Montserrat is a must when in Barcelona. One hour train ride from the center of Barcelona. You can take a cable car (5 minutes) or a funicular to top of peak. Monastery and museum at the top. Breathtaking views from mountain and gorgeous cathedral with medieval courtyard. This was the highlight of my trip to Barcelona. You will not regret!

    Definitely not a must see. Monastery was okay and quiet if you go early in the morning. If you want to visit, go early to beat the heat. If you are into hiking, there is a great view about a 1 mile up from the funicular. You need separate tickets for this. It is not worth it if you don't hike up to the top.

    If I had to do it again I would spend my time and money someplace else. Not much to see or do except church, shop and hike. The altitude makes for good views.

    Needs to be experienced. Recommendations: Come up via the cable car. Do the hikes early so that you're not rushing to catch the final rides out at the end of the day. Be prepared for long lines to see the statue of the Virgin. The buffet is not too bad, lots of variety.
