Another spontaneous idea of visiting Montserrat Mountain arrived at our heads, after Google Maps misguided us from the main traffic road to Barcelona, and we went on the wrong direction - but hey -  we noticed a sign directing to Montserrat. Signs speak themselves.  Update: Visit of Mount Montserrat was a place from our about week long travels…

But to keep up with the costs - I found…
