Barcelona and Montserrat

Barcelona Friday Nov. 18 6:10 PM (12:10 PM EST)

This morning, after sleeping almost fourteen hours, we had breakfast at our hotel and then took the Metro to the La Espanya Station to board the train to Monserrat. Montserrat is about 35 miles northwest of Barcelona, about 30 minutes on the train. Then a 20 minute ride in a cog-rail train up the side of the mountain. Spent quite a bit of time up there in the Basilica - an impressive building.
At 1:00 PM there was a presentation by a boys choir and the Basilica was packed. We had lunch on the mount and then wandered around the grounds. Then the train(s) and metro back to the hotel. About 8:00 PM we will walk around the corner for dinner. Tomorrow we will take the train again. This time we will be going to Figueres to visit the Dali Museum.
