So I took the train from Barcelona to the base of Montserrat(serrated mountain) today. It was about an hour trip, and then I took the gondola lift up to the monastery on the mountain. I am not the best fan of heights. The cable car got up to 300 feet off the ground at points. That being what it is I still do not understand totally how monks built up the place so well. It looks like a mall up there in the main area. It is crazy steep no matter where you look, treacherously steep. It was an amazing sight to see and I did the "pilgrimage" hike to see where the other out of the way sights were. A good day, and now it is the eve of St. John the Baptist day and there are fireworks being lit off all over the place. I am not religious, but enjoying the show.
