A long, scenic drive to the mountains and the Montserrat Abbey. Our guide was disappointing because her quick tour did not do justice to the Abbey. We paid for an audio visual program there and understood things much better. There was not enough time with a half-day tour to properly explore the property, Many people were not prepared for how cold and windy it was at that elevation inland. Read Less

Montserrat was amazing and well worth visiting. This was the perfect opportunity to visit it as I'd been twice to Barcelona already. The winery we visited was also really great.

Basically a monastery up a mountain. We weren’t given any warning that it was going to be freezing cold and incredibly windy - it was so cold my ears hurt. Some of the others in shorts/t-shirts were positively miserable. Long queue to see the famous statue inside - skipped that and went for a coffee. Scenery/countryside is beautiful, and the train ride is good. Read Less
