How do I get there?

The sanctuary site can be accessed from Monistrol de Montserrat. After reaching the town, you can take the route up the mountain either by car or hillside railway. We recommend taking the C-32 where will take you up the mountain in just over an hour.

From Monistrol de Montserrat to the sanctuary

By car: take the mountain road for 8.5 km (16 minutes); the road is well signposted, well surfaced, and winding. On arrival, you will find an open-air, paid car park at approx. 600 metres from the Sanctuary.

Get directions

By hillside railway: we recommend this option for an unforgettable experience with unparalleled views. The route starts out at Monistrol and terminates opposite the Monastery. The train carriages have air conditioning, panoramic views, and have been adapted for persons with reduced mobility.
