Your local host of choice will meet you at Plaça d'Espanya where you’ll jump on board of the train to kick of your day trip with a comfortable ride through the beautiful Catalan landscape. Along the way, your host can already share interesting facts with you about Montserrat and discuss your itinerary for the day - which, of course, you and your kids can adjust to your wishes.

Upon arrival in Montserrat, you can all enjoy a fun ride up the mountain by cable-car that goes straight through the mountain range. The views are stunning and it's the best way to get to Montserrat comfortably, including the best panorama!
