Montserrat, Spain - Sept 8 or Sept 10?

Jump to last reply

Hi,

I'll be visiting Barcelona in a couple of weeks. I would like to visit Montserrat one of the days I am there.

Friday, September 8 seems to be a pilgrimage day to Montserrat according to an old New York Times article:

<< A monastery has stood on the same site in Montserrat since the early Middle Ages, though the present 19th-century building replaced the rubble left by Napoléon's troops in 1812. The shrine is world-famous, and one of Catalonia's spiritual sanctuaries: honeymooning couples flock here by the thousands seeking La Moreneta's blessing on their marriages, and twice a year, on April 27 and September 8, the diminutive statue of Montserrat's Black Virgin becomes the object of one of Spain's greatest pilgrimages.>>

I imagine that day will be very crowded.

The only other day I have available is Sunday, Sept 10. Anyone have any experience with how crowded it will be on a Sunday, please?

Thanks very much!
