Montserrat monastery was found around thousand years ago, but because of several wars it hasn’t been functioning for ages. Today, thousand years after it was originally founded, Montserrat has been modernised and ready to attend pilgrims.
The monastery is definitely worth visiting and truly beautiful out and inside, but besides that you have a lot of fascinating things to see.
First of all you may enjoy an amazing view to the mountains from the main square. Another thing, which will make your trip worthy, is hiking up to the hills by walk or funicular. If you are hiking by yourself you may be lucky enough to meet a mountain-goat. The views you will see while hiking surely won’t leave you indifferent.
Montserrat is located 50 km away from Barcelona, but it’s very easy to get there by ferrocaril, which will cost you approximately €20 both ways. It takes approximately 1.5 hour to get to Montserrat.
Talking about gastronomy, you may found 2 Michelin stars restaurant and also a café with very average prices. Close to the main square are located a couple of souvenir shops, where you can find many things form authentic food till postcards and t-shirts.
