Mountain views and General Impressions of Montserrat

Montserrat is an incredible town, high in the mountains of Catalunya. It was very difficult to find it on the GPS system but we managed. We left our car at the foot of the mountain and made our way up via a cable car.

This monastery and wine village is a unique setting with spectacular buildings and panoramic views. When you decide to go even higher, you are able to take a train to the peak of the mountain, something we really recommend.

Montserrat is een ongelooflijke stad in de Catalaanse bergen. Het was zeer moeilijk te vinden via GPS maar uiteindelijk slaagden we er toch in. Onze auto bleef achter aan de voet van de berg en een kabelbaan bracht ons naar boven. 

Deze klooster- en wijnstad is een unieke plaats met spectaculaire gebouwen en panoramische vergezichten. Als je beslist nog hoger te gaan, kan je een bergtrein nemen tot aan de bergtop, iets dat we zeker aanbevelen.
