Barcelona - Montserrat and Discover Walks Gaudí Tour

Recommended Posts

We will be in Barcelona for four days in late September.  The first day (with jet lag) we will take it easy, visiting Palau Güell (free tickets from our hotel) and some events at the Mercè Festival (lucky timing!).


The second day we plan to do Rick Steves' Barri Gotic walk and his El Born Walk, with the Magic Fountains in the evening.


The question is about days three and four, which are Thursday (Sept. 26) and Friday (Sept. 27).  One of those days we will take the train to Montserrat for the boys' choir and hikes etc.  The other day we will go to Sagrada Familia when it opens, then do Discover Walks' Gaudí Tour ending at Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, and after lunch visit Montjuïc.


The question is:  is there a preferred order for those two days?  Is one of the other likely to be busier on the Thursday or the Friday?  [We have booked the guitar concert at the Palau Musica for Friday at 21:00, so unless it is a bad day for Montserrat I'm inclined to do that visit on Friday.]


Thanks for advice!

Did you check to see when the choir performs?  That would be helpful to know, but I think you laid it out nicely!  Have a fabulous time!


As far as I can tell, the choir performs both days.  But it turned out that Discover Walks only has that tour on the Friday, and if either day will be less crowded on Montserrat it should be Thursday – so it seems to have worked itself out.
