Montserrat is a mountain about 45KM north west of Barcelona City. On top is Benedictine monastery of Sta. Maria de Montserrat visited by a lot of pilgrims.
One of the places I really wanted to visit in this whole Europe trip was Montserrat. When I told my friend Joanne about it, she instantly agreed to go with me to the place. She says that she goes there occasionally, and all her prayers in every visit got answered! How wonderful!
How to get there from Barcelona
At Plaza de España station, travelers can buy a combination of return ticket + cable car ride for €20. Board the Line R5 train headed towards Manresa. It may be a little difficult to find the track as the station is huge. Also note that the train leaves at specific times. We missed ours by literally one minute so we had to wait for another hour to catch the next one!
