Where is Montserrat Spain ?
Montserrat Spain is located 60 kms northwest of Barcelona. In car, it takes about 1 hour 15 minutes from city centre to the Monastery. Montserrat can be reached by road but also by cable car or by rack railway from Ferrocarrils of the Generalitat de Catalunya, which bring you to the monastery. From there, you can reach the holy cave and San Juan by funicular railway. Several hiking trails have been laid out and provide access to other remains such as ancient hermitages, small churches or monuments scattered and often abandoned in the surrounding mountains. A dream for trekking.

Must do in Montserrat :
