Hello, I have a question about Montserrat. I know I have to take R5 from the Plaza España train station but I cant find any information online about the timetable of the train. I know it departs every hour but is it every hour on the hour and does it run the same on the weekends. How much does it cost?

Also what stop do I have to get off on to take the cable car?

There are several stops with the name Manresa.

How long do I need to visit Montserrat.

Hi ginger_2501,

Here is the timetable for the R5:


You'll probably end up buying a combo ticket that includes your cable car ride and possibly other things as well. A good site that will detail your choices is:


The train stop is called Montserrat - Aeri (or Aeri de Montserrat).

The length of your visit can vary by what you plan on doing once you are up at the monastery. There are hiking trails as well as two funiculars that allow you to explore many different parts of the mountain. I think most people would say allow at least a half-day to explore and enjoy Montserrat.
