Getting to Parador Cardona without car

Jump to last reply

We are recently graduated friends who are in desperate need of a vacation after a year of working non-stop in a corporate environment.

We're landing in Barcelona on Dec 18th and will make our way to Brussels, Belgium by Jan 3rd, stopping in France in between.

For our Spanish leg, we're not sure how many days we should spend in Spain. I don't think we want to venture too far outside of the Catalonia region, but we're totally inexperienced with the railways, buses, etc.

One of the things that struck my fancy was spending a night at the Parador Cardona, just to say I've slept in a castle before. However, we have no intention of driving (since a majority of the time will be in Barcelona). Is there a combination of buses, trains, and cabs that can get us to Cardona? What would the estimated cost of that be? I also am finding conflicting reports of whether this Parador has internet. Can anyone confirm?

I heard Montserrat is also fairly closeby to the Parador. Where in our itinerary should we fit that in (before getting to Cardona, on our way to/from Cardona, while we're at Cardona)?

Does any of these trips make sense in December?

Any other suggestions for our stay in Spain? We were thinking of spending at least 4 nights in Spain.
