How long do you need to visit Montserrat? If you organise your own visit and go by train from Placa de Espanya then we would recommend that you set off most of a day. With waiting time and finding platforms etc the train journey and cog train from the valley to the abbey takes 2 hours in total each way.. so 4 hours of transport.
Add to that 2 hours of exploring and 1 hour break time for snacks and souvenir shopping and you are up to 7 hours, so most of the day. If you want to do it all faster then book one of the many tours to Montserrat. One of the fastest and most convenient is from DayTripsBarcelona.com – we are a small, local and family tour company. We have a 4 hour express Montserrat tour with hotel pick-up.
A visit to Montserrat Abbey nestled on Montserrat mountain is one of the most popular day trips from Barcelona. Choose from one of our 4 Montserrat tours. We offer an early access 4 hour express tour, a morning early access Montserrat tour, an afternoon Montserrat tour and a tour that combines Montserrat with a visit to a winery or cava winery. The monastery has 1000 year old Benedictine order of monks, unique geology and rock formations and the stunning Santa Maria de Montserrat basilica and Virgin of Montserrat shrine. It can be visited in just 4 hours from Barcelona. Visit www.daytripsbarcelona.com

In 2014 some of our DayTripsBarcelona guests helped us make a video version of the hit “Happy” song.
Thanks to all the fantastically talented dancing guests who made this video so much fun.
It was filmed on locations from our Day Tour outside Barcelona.
