Montserrat | Spain

This weekend we did a trip to Montserrat, which is a beautiful mountain close to Barcelona. You can reach the top of the mountain by choosing the air way by jumping on a cable car or by catching a train which takes you on top with a little railway. We got a chance to try both and each option provided excellent views over the mountain range. The top of Montserrat is not only great for walking tours with excellent views but also gives you the opportunity to visit an old monastery Santa Maria de Montserrat. If you ever visit Barcelona, Montserrat is a great option for a day trip. 
So, how to get there? Take the train R5 from Pla├ža Espanya. The station you need to get off at Montserrat depends on how you want to get to the mountain. For the rack railway, get off at Monistrol de Montserrat. For the cable car, get off at Montserrat Aeri.
