Going to Monserrat requires a day trip if you really want to spend time when you are up to the mountain, and to visit the monastery. It is worth visiting so have fun. :)

The view is amazing, only thing is that it is always crowded with tourists. If one is visiting Montserrat without planing for a hike, it is not that special. The hiking routes are great.

Train ride each way is one hour. Train leaves every hour. Too risky. However, it is a much better option than going to Gaudi church or even Picasso 's museum. All nice but this is special. Have a lovely trip!
