1. Resort localization and how to get there
It is the only way to get to Montserrat that leaves you right in the middle of the monastery, a 15-minute journey with a privileged and spectacular view of the mountain.
From Pl. Espanya station in Barcelona or from other stations of the FGC Llobregat-Anoia line you can catch any train of the R5 service towards Manresa if you are coming from Barcelona, or towards Barcelona if you are coming from Manresa. You have to get off at Monistrol de Montserrat station, where the rack railway will take you to Montserrat station, passing through Monistrol-Vila station.
For those coming by car, they can park in Monistrol de Montserrat and take there the Rack Railway. More information in Montserrat Rack Railway.
