We talked the other day to visit Montserrat is something you have to do if you come to spend a few days in Barcelona. And the question that you’ll do is typical: how to get to Montserrat? Well … Because there are several ways to get to Montserrat, we decided to dedicate an entire post to this topic.

Sure you have heard many times about the “Cremallera” of Montserrat. It is a very famous transport here!. The Cremallera railway (zipper) is known by this name because of the shape of the chains that bind the soil and allow access (similar to a zipper).
The Cremallera is caught in Monistrol de Montserrat. Cremallera pass very often (every 20 minutes) and the journey takes 15 minutes. The ticket price is 8.60€ (go and return)
And now you may ask yourself. And how do I get to Montserrat Monistrol to catch Cremallera?. You have two options: by car, and you park in a free parking for over 900 seats. Or by train from Barcelona. You take the Ferrocarriles de la Generalitat (FGC) in Plaça Espanya (R5 Line Barcelona-Manresa) running every hour.
