We enjoyed our trip and the views! We were able to get there early enough to avoid the crowds and take our time visiting the chapel and the black Madonna. Our tour guide was very informative and educated on Montserrat. The hike was pretty easy since it was mostly downhill but

The tour guide Ferran made it very easy for us to understand the meaning the monastery has for the Catalonian people. It is a very beautiful place. We had time to take great pictures, to explore a little bit of the surroundings and had a very good small lunch at the cafeteria.
