About Abandoned Hotel Colonia Puig To Montserrat Monastery

Views: 654. Updated: Oct 5, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

Little historical records and documentation exist about the hotel so I will try and give an overview.

Around 1910, the Catalan industral Sr. Puig, acquired the Farmhouse site to build his hotel, apparently counting on the financial help of his friend, Alejandro Lerroux who led the radical republican party. According to an autobiographical manuscript by the anarchist Juan Garcia Oliver, he claims to have been hired in this hotel as a waiter in 1918. Thus, the opening of the premises had to take place before 1918 but there is data that puts it in 1912.

The magnificent location of the three-storey hotel attracted, from the moment of its opening, high society guests that could have a room from 3.50 pesetas (about 145 Euros today) and Room including meals for 15 pesetas (about 630 euros today). For the transfer of its customers, the hotel even had a fleet of Swiss cars.

The civil war (1936) ended the hotel buisness and the buiding was used as a blood hospital for wounded soldiers from the civil war. Republican and civilian servicemen were welcomed - severely wounded as a result of German bombs dropped by Stukas aircraft, many of them from the nearby town of Monistrol de Montserrat, Heavily bombed in early 1939 by shelling.

After the war, the hotel reopened its doors. This is recorded in the publicity of a banquet that it hosted in 1955 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Montesa motorcycles. Finally, the hotel closed its doors in the late 80s.

Today, the hotel is an unmanaged privately owned abandoned ruin.

NOTE: Should you enter the building, be aware that the complex is extremely unstable and is very dangerous, especially after heavy rainfall. You enter at your own risk with the knowledge that you are trespassing on private property.

Getting To Abandoned Hotel Colonia Puig To Montserrat Monastery

The quickest way is to get the FGC train to Monistrol de Montserrat and walk through the town up the mountain towards Monastery de Sant Bennet for about 2km.

However. I have a more interesting 11km walking route starting at FGC Monistrol de Montserrat. The route finishes at the Montserrat Monastery where you can get down via the Cremllera or Aire Cable car. Returning to Barcelona via the FGC train service. See the Wikiloc Tab.

These stations are on the FGC LLobregat Anoia lines.

Additionally, I recomend checking Mountain Forcast website Which has more detailed information about the Montserrat mountain range Weather.
