Montserrat by Gratis in Barcelona

Montserrat in Barcelona is a beautiful sanctuary of Benedictine monks in the mountains approximately one hour northwest from Barcelona by train.

Not only the monastery of Montserrat is of religious importance but that the natural beauty that surrounds the monastery is simply amazing.

If you like to walk there is also some interesting walks in the mountains where you will experience the magnificent views of some of the more unusual rock formations all over Catalonia. You can go by train to the top of the mountain and from there you can choose a variety of different walks, all with stunning views of the outskirts of Catalonia.

Getting to Montserrat is easy, whether by public transport or car.

Hourly trains from Barcelona and Manresa link up with the rack railway , and the cable car. Montserrat is also well communicated with the main road network.

Also the tradition of reaching Montserrat on foot goes back to the Middle Ages, when there was no other way of coming to worship the Holy Image. Nowadays, many groups of pilgrims continue to walk up to Montserrat once a year. Walking up the mountain is an excellent way of enjoying nature and maintaining the tradition.
