What people are saying about Monistrol de Montserrat

Had an incredible time visiting Montserrat. This place was breathtaking. Be prepared to get there first thing in the morning. It gets busy. The audio guide and map was confusing at first the red numbers verses the blue numbers. However we loved it. We got there at 10.00 from the metro and rail tram from the San Pau metro stop in Barcelona. I wasn’t informed about not being able to enter the Bascillica for the audio tour from 10.00 to 12.00 because of mass. Therefore out timed slot with visiting the Black Madonna was at 12.00 and when we got out the line to enter the Bascillica was already in the courtyard. We didn’t finish the audio tour. All in all we loved visiting. It was inspiring and breathtaking. If your an art lover visit the miss. If not don’t waste your time. Definitely walk the grounds and see the stairs to heaven and take in the views.

The tour guide Robert Lopez was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. The tour is actually quite flexible, allowing you to stay at Montserrat for the whole day if you choose, but of course you'd need to make your own way back to Barcelona, at your own cost.

Super organized. Booked my ticket online an eoche beforehand. Voucher came immediately afterwards. Bypassed all queues. Super relaxed.
