Pics to prove train to Montserrat from Barcelona?

Hi,
four of us are going to Barcelona for a long weekend and looking for what options we have to go to Montserrat for the day Question

Has anyone done this recently, I know the L/R Party has just been in the area, but driving is out, we are flying in.

Any thoughts please, we have seen some organised 4-5 hour taxi type trips (£50-£130 each!) and have wondered how easy it is to get the train

any recommendations Question

TIA Thumbs Up

Hi,
dont think the hire car route will work for us, it is the only day we are thinking about heading out of the center so maybe not worth the pick up and dropping off time involved Thumbs Up

Have had a look through the train option link Thumbs Up and this might work better for us, gives more time there and start time would be more flexible Whistle

Have to have a look what the "Santa Cova Cave" is now as well, swmbo has already said she is Not walking to the top of the mountain another 300M or not

Hi,
decision made, we are getting the train then rack train, seems all straight forward enough and gives us more time to explore than a pre-organised trip

swmbo was pleased to hear that there is a classic car show on the same weekend Whistle

at this rate we will need Another long weekend Barcelona break Mr. Green

You’re missing a really fun drive up to the monastery! I’d almost forgotten taking a hired Citroen Xantia round all the hairpins a long time ago. Not one for nervous passengers though!

I was sitting "why the heck would you go to the Caribbean from Spain?!?"

Then the comment about the train really got me confused

Turns out there's two Montserrat Laughing

I remember doing this a couple of years ago, what a great drive and when you first see the mountains 😊

Well just to prove we got there
Went by metro, then train, then rack train up to the monestry and fenucula train up to the top for a walk
It’s a long way down!!
A great day out set off at 10:0 and back in time for a beer and a rooftop sunset on the Raval
