montserrat BCNMontserrat

This is definitely a place worth visiting.  It is situated just about an hour away from Barcelona and the single journey ticket only costs €3.80. It is a beautiful mountain range, the Sanctuary of the Virgin Mary and a great place to hike. The trains from Montserrat back to the City Centre are once every hour. The train from the Renfe station in Plaza d’Espanya doesn’t take you directly to the place itself but rather to the bottom of the mountain, where you can take the cable car which then takes you directly to Montserrat. The cable car is the quickest way up and runs from 10.00h to 18.00h/19.00h, depending on the time of the year and whether it’s a working day or weekend. This mountain offers a variety of official trails and marked footpaths. You can also wander around without following an exact trail as long as you stick to the marked paths or at least stay close to them. One of the most amazing aspects are the views and beauty of the area.  It’s has a Natural Park and the beautiful abbey make it the ideal day trip.
