Only managed to reach Montseratt just before the sun sets because we got lost on our way to the "saw-toothed mountain". Therefore, a quick tip to avoid getting lost (like us) while getting here is to first, head to "Placa d'Espanya" station located in Barcelona and hop on the R5 train that heads towards Mansera. You will end up taking either the funicular train or cable car up to the monastery depending on which stop you choose to get off. I've attached this extremely helpful website for a more detailed guide on getting to Montseratt. You are promised spectacular views and idyllic vibe so it is definitely a day trip worth doing when in Barcelona. Here are a few pictures we managed to grab before the sky turned dark:
