The views are beautiful. Reason 4 vs 5 stars is that the signage for the hikes is very confusing. Very hard to discern which is the trail up and to go back to the start Take the tram up and walking down saves time.

I visited Montserrat as part of an excellent Busplana tour, and after seeing the key sites around the church we had some free time so decided to take the walk to St Michael's cross. We are both over 60 and did not find the walk...More

Great value for money and time ... a friendly and informative host who provided numerous options for the free time to explore. There was so much to do and see and just not enough time. We are very keen to return and see more!!

Through this tour you will explore la Basilica and the Sanctuary. What you will see is just discovering one of the most spectacular landscapes of Catalonia and cradle of the Catalan culture.

I was on a tour of Montserrat and I decided to hike the trail. It was breathtakingly beautiful. The path can be a little slippery but it is well worth it as the view is amazing.

If you only have time for one walk, I would choose this one.This walk begins in back of the Santa Cova Funicular. Look for the documented signs to St. Michael's Path. The walk takes about 20 minutes each way. It is more uphill on the...More

Just slightly over an hour by train from Barcelona, you can reach Montserrat by the funicular or by cable car. Of course you can also drive up there. The walking trials are amazing and the views from Montserrat are absolutely amazing.

There are a few places you can sit once you are up there besides in the church... there is also a restaurant/snack shop that is nice to have a cool drink in or something light to eat.
