Montserrat is a famous monk mountain retreat. It offers you a spectacular mountain views of Catalunya. You don’t need to be a monk to visit this place. No confusion! The mountain view on the top is breathtaking. I felt my soul has been purified and problems vanquished amidst its tranquility.
Getting to the mountain top
Thank god cable car is available to reach to the top of mountain. The cable car ride is a sheer joy because you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery through its transparent window. I noticed this cable car ascending angle is quite steep. Hence, this ride might be an horrifying experience for those who is afraid of height!
Unusual mountain top
The mountain top is idiosyncratic comparing to the usual greenery scene. It’s a formation of rock without the presence of abundance greenery. Pure light brown in color. Pretty awesome right? Besides, the mountain top area is quite large and you can enjoy the view from all angles.
Other point of interest
There are other point of interest besides the unusual brown zenith. Interesting monuments and unique architecture masterpiece are ready for your admiration. You can even explore further to the adjacent area for other attraction or perform some hiking, if you like sport.
Be mindful on the mountain ascending and descending transport schedule if you are doing this as a day trip from Barcelona. You don’t want to be stranded on top of Montserrat inadvertently. However, accommodation choices are available at the worst scenario. No worry and cheers!
