Road Trip To Spain: Montserrat

First Spain post - Road Trip to Spain: Costa Brava

Midweek, we took a day trip to Montserrat to go hiking.  You're better off googling it then having me explain, but it's an abbey on a mountain, an hour outside of Barcelona.  Here's the wikipedia to start.

You can take a cable car or rack railway up to the abbey from the town below (where the train from Barcelona stops) to add to the experience/expense.  Since we had the car anyway, we drove all the way up to the abbey and parked for 6€.

Once you're at the abbey, you can walk or take a funicular further up the mountain.

From the top of the funicular, you can hike further up and around several trails.
