    There are several hiking routes that start at the Montserrat monastery. However, the guides given out in the tourist office on site are not detailed enough to easily follow the routes by yourself.

    Take a hiking tour to get the best out of the beautiful countryside that surrounds Montserrat, including a climb up to the highest point at St. Jerome (4,055 feet or 1,236 metres)
