  • This area is a short funcular ride from the main Montserrat monestary. The hike is very easy as its mostly level. You can see some sculptures along the hike. The series covers Christ's crucifixion and...  more »
  • The Santa Cova funicular was not running in January so we walked back and forth the entire way to the Santa Cova Chapel. The walk took about 90 minutes roundtrip. The initial part of the walk is steep...  more »
  •  I haven't seen most people will ride, used went by foot.  You can get not only have a single branch until the Santa Cova, get lost. To go up close and built the church really like to cling to the cliffs.  As 2:00 PM did, in the replica has the Black Maria were placed in alcove. Is far away than I thought was pretty interesting.

  • This is the cave where the Virgin of Montserrat was discovered by local children. Why kids were playing here on the side of a huge cliff is beyond me. Today the cave is covered by a church and is a lovely stroll from the main monastery area. It's a long way down so consider taking the funicular back.
  • The way is very nice, but Santa Cova is only a good joke. Small and boaring. Inside the building you will find nothing interesting.
  • A serene and beautiful place. The walk along the cliffside path is easy and offers some of the best views of the Valley. The Santa Cova Fenicular will take you towards here from the Montserrat village. Found the "TransMonstserrat" ticket easy for rides on all the Montserrat Fenicular and Rack railway.
  • The cave is wrapped and protected by a small chapel, that seems to be hanging on the cliff. It's a quite nice piece of architecture. Different from most catholic temples, it has a very simple decoration. To get there, you must take a trail from the Montserrat Monastery. There is a funicular that covers the steepest part of the trail, but i don't recommend taking it to go down, because it doesn't worth the price. Use it only for going back up, if you're tired. Te trail is ornamented with lots of religious sculptures.
  • Nice hike from Montserrat. It's a holy place, the community's reverence for the place is quite visible. Worth a visit.
