About Montserrat

At Montserrat not only will you find the pastoral activities of the sanctuary, but also a wide variety of leisure, cultural and natural activities that you can combine in different ways according to the amount of time you have and your interests. If you are coming at Montserrat for the day, you can spend some time in the sanctuary learning about its history and artistic heritage from a thorough audio guide, as well as select one of the many itineraries along trails that head off into the wood... All this in an unmatched setting, a magical mountain that you can reach by car, coach, cable car or rack railway. Once at the sanctuary, you can also enjoy the spectacular rides on the funicular.
