A nice spot for a pause before hiking the tracks in the mountains. Nice surroundings and a museum available.

We just kind of wandered around here on our own without a tour. We enjoyed taking our time and seeing the beautiful building nestled high in the mountains. It was fairly cold and breezy, so if you travel in the winter, keep that in mind.

What a amazing place to visit. Fabulous scenery outside and equally beautiful inside. Make sure you get there in time to hear boys choir, they sound amazing.

This is very unique tour. A bus ride from Barcelona to above the clouds to Montserrat. Beautiful! The church is absolutely stunning and the grounds immaculate. Well worth the trip and the cost of the tour.

We were on a day trip to visit the Abbe as well do a wine tasting at a winery. The Abbe itself is combination of new and some what recent construction - Napolean destroyed it and Franco wasn't thrilled with a Catalonian shrine. Therefore the...More

I read so many reviews and researched so hard to try to understand how the tickets work. Not necessary at all if visiting in your own vehicle in the month of May as we did. We arrived at the top parking at around 9:00 am....More
