We took the train to Montserrat an early Sunday morning in the end of January. Montserrat is a mountain with interesting rock formations that we could spot already long before we reached our destination. The train took about an hour, so it is a perfect day trip if you’re in Barcelona.
Montserrat is not just a place with a magnificent view. Despite it being far up in the mountains, you can also find a museum and a beautiful catholic church there.
It was very windy when we went there, but still a sunny and lovely day. We had our lunch on some rocks where we enjoyed the view and could see all the way to the backside of Tibidabo, the mountain surrounding Barcelona.
