Hking around Montserrat for two days - any suggestions?

by eeljapan

Hi all the travelo lovers,

I am staying in Barcelona for a week in mid July, and would want to spend two or three day doing some hiking. Since Montserrat appears such a special place, and since very many sites suggested to stay overnight there, I thought "perhaps, I can combine Montserrat and hiking together?!"
It seems indeed the area is a mecca of climbing but I don't do climbing. Do any of you suggest not-so-challenging hiking paths from Montserrat to somewhere? I would like to stay at Montserrat and start the hike next morning.

Thank you for your help!

There is one route, starting from Montserrat to Els Degotalls and Back to Montserrat, it is around 3.5km long and takes around one hour and a half to complete, difficulty is low. There are two more routes to hike, other was somewhere around 5km long and the other was around 7km long. A very beautifull area for hiking I must say. Good choice in my opinion.

Thank you for the suggestion! I can walk up to 20km, I'm just not used to rocks and climbing environment. If you have more suggestions, I will be happy to hear!

Have you thought of seeing the Tour du France? I will be ending a cruise in Barcelona on 18th of July and renting a car to drive to see the mountain stages of the Tour Du France on the 19th. (Col de Tormelet)and getting back to BCN by the 26th of July. If interested drop me a e-mail.(xymmot@aol.com) My cruise starts on July 11th. Montserrat has many day trips, guided tours there , most people do not stay overnight there cause there is little nightlife and Barcelona is close by.

We've only visited Montserrat (see my pages) and found it quite an amazing place. There is accom available, see http://www.montserratvisita.com/ and click onto the English tab.

We took the funicular to the top area and did a short walk (not enough time to go further). The paths were well maintained and led to various chapels scattered in and around the peaks. Seems to be plenty of trails according to http://www.montserratvisita.com/internes/_pUI7-gXTbraorWsYtYXV_fMvL1xj8odwXxppo1OjJRs

When we visited we were a little late for the choir mid day performance and there was a stampede coming out. Its been suggested that the choirs first performance is much better and almost no visitors, so suggest you get there for that and then do the hiking.

Enjoy Montserrat, it is a very beautiful place.

If you go to Montserrat site you'll find a number of initieries for hiking there. http://www.montserratvisita.com/?go=6b0419701c53a8c06002899e506189cbb75ded1990f29ce65c73dd04e60480c648d665c5eedcc70ca9041ad7dbe5323eb68485a50d572a956342b21686fe7767d0fbd1c365bcbb62
We made two: one from the upper funiculor and the go to the right. Not hard from the point of view of hiking, magnificent views. But it was hard at the end due to the heat. And the second one was from the lower funiculor to the chapel. This route makes you think of higher materials.

Parc Guell

by surferob

All the way across town towards Tibidabo is lovely Parc Guell. Designed by Gaudi (who else), it's a surprisingly intimate and peaceful retreat from the city. A great place to take a walk or go for a jog maybe. It's up on a hill so of course you get the view of the city. You can also take the opportunity to sit on the "longest continuous bench in the world", and it is pretty damn long. It incorporates a kind of tile mosaic thing and was designed by......what's his name.........oh yea, Gaudi.

Best way to get there is by bus, consult the transportation map. One unexpected thing happened here that I'll not forget. We came across an excellent classical guitarist performing for tourists, although there were very few around. I asked him to play a piece that I've always liked, a rather famous (and perhaps somewhat cliche) piece called Austurias, by Spaniard Isaac Albeniz. I've always loved it. His reply, "Sure, my pleasure". And so my friend and I were treated to a kind of private performance by a true musician.....that doesn't happen every day.

Diagonal Has Hidden Treasures!

by mikey_e

Visitors often treat Avinguda Diagonal as a sort of wonder of urban planning that doesn't merit much attention. Not true!!! If you walk along the Diagonal through the Eixample (walk from about Monsèn Verdaguer towards the Esquerra) you can find all sorts of statues, fountains and architectural wonders that are not on a tourist guide map. Some of the sculpture pictures are below.

Convent de Santa Caterina

by Joacim

The remains of the convent is to be found under the Santa Caterina Market. When the excavations carried out beneath the Market it revealed the archaeological remains of the former Convent dels Predicadors (Convent of the Preachers), which was later renamed the Convent de Santa Caterina.

Other religious buildings and a late-Roman necropolis were also unearthed, the latter containing amphora, tegulae and formae tombs (made with building materials). Part of the site has been preserved and is open to visitors. Plans are underway to create a visitor centre to provide key information about the site and its evolution from prehistoric times until it became a market.
