A day trip to Montserrat with a group of friends or just with your family can be a perfect day out! We have been a couple of time with a group of friends with kids and we all have enjoyed the experience so much. There are many different paths to take and the scenery is just fantastic, such outstanding views and quite easy walk. We took the Funicular to get to a certain level and we walked to the very top.
I Found a very detailed article on Trip Advisor about this trip to the Monastery of Montserrat and a bit of history as well.
