Awe inspiring
Out tour guide, Jennifer, was fantastic. During the 40-min train ride from Plaza Espanya in Barcelona, she told us a lot about the history of Barcelona and the Catalonia region (including recent political movements regarding independence referendum). Once we got to Monserrat she continued to be a wealth of information about the mountain and the monastery.

We did not have to worry on our whereabouts during our tour as our tour guide was very lovely.
