Day trip to Montserrat - any tips?

Jump to last reply

We're spending one week in Barcelona, so we plan to do a day trip to Montserrat.

I understand there's a combo ticket I can buy in advance in Barcelona, which includes the subway trip (in Barcelona), train ticket, cable car OR rack railway, funicular, museums, and lunch.

I assume the combo ticket is good for any day and any train?

Which is better - cable car or rack railway?

I also read that the Escolania de Montserrat performs inside the basilica daily? But I have trouble figuring out what time the performance is. Some guidebooks say 1pm, can anyone confirm that? http://www.escolania.cat/

I'd appreciate if you can give me any tips you may have. Is there any advantage to visit one attraction first before another? Or just some sort of visiting order that would make the most sense?
