Because we bought a late visit, we didn't get to visit any of the museums and everything gat closed at 6 pm. It could have been mentioned somehow He recomendaction of how long the trip to Monserat would really take. It was written 1,5 hours before the reserved time to get onto the train. But... we kad to wait 48 min. inbetween the trains. There were no working hours of museums mentioned. Some did visit the place, but would have been nice to explore whole atmosphere. A lot of places were already closed after the church and Black Madonna's visit.

Loved the links to the train station and where to go once we got there!!! First time traveller to Barcelona and this made it so easy!!!!

Board a train and set out on a round-trip journey from Barcelona to explore the mountainous region of Montserrat, where the crown of serrated mountains stands tall to awe you. Visit the Information Office to get your hands on the multiple-language audio guide and informative booklet, along with a map to explore the monumental sites of Montserrat in depth.

The revered religious sites

With hassle-free round-trip transfers from Barcelona, start exploring the energetic sites with no delay. The centuries-old Basilica of Montserrat is a site of pilgrimage, as the Throne of the Virgin of Montserrat, a Romanesque sculpture, resides here. Stand in awe of the golden arches and ornaments adorning the walls of the Basilica, and upgrade your ticket to attend the prayer ceremony and liturgical celebrations with the boys’ choir of Escolanía de Montserrat, one of Europe’s oldest music schools.

Historical Museum of Montserrat

A historically rich and artistically significant site, the Open-Air Museum in Montserrat is a sanctuary comprising of multiple religious sites. Located here is the Holy Grotto, also called Santa Cova, where, according to legends, the sculpture of the Virgin of Montserrat was hidden to protect it from Moorish invaders. Catch a glimpse of the exhibition of Audiovisual Space Montserrat Portes Endins, which tells the story of the monastery, sanctuary, and the serrated mountains. To explore the artistic culture of the region, head over to the Museum of Montserrat, which was crowned a museum of national interest in 2006. Works by artists such as Monet, Dali, and Picasso grace the walls of the museum, with important archaeological collections from Mesopotamia, Persia, and Egypt displayed proudly in the museum.
