    Take the funicula up to the mountains and go on one of the walks; the views are amazing. Make sure you check the times for the last funicular as it's a long way to walk down!

    It costs between 5-10 euros from what I remember. The ride is fab and once you're up there, it's simply breath-taking.

    You are able to walk around and even see the 'Black Madonna'. There will be a slight queue if you want to see the 'Black Madonna' up close.

    Walking around the Monastery, you can take your time. Enjoy the peace; there are many places that you can sit, or light a candle and be within your own thoughts.

    The architechture is beautiful as is how the Monastery is decorated with gold tiles and art work of religious figures.

    We got the train then a very steep cable car ride to reach Montserrat. The views were amazing going up, you can see so far. We went up through the clouds and got off where the Monastery is.
    Montserrat is a Benedictine monk mountain retreat. It is truly beautiful.

    Plan a whole day for this trip. There is lots to do and explore. Many experiences in one day is not something that you come across often.
