About Sant Jeroni from Montserrat Monastery

Views: 293. Updated: Oct 5, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

This is a circular 11.9Km Easy-Medium route starting and finishing at Montserrat Monastery. The route starts by following the pas de francoeses leaving the monastery via the Santa Maria River valley passing via concrete steps through a mountain pass before getting to Santa Anna ruined hermitage with views looking down on the monastery.

From Santa Anna the route follows a forestall trail gradually climbing up the Santa Anna River valley until it intersects with the Cami de Sant Joan to Sant Jeroni. This is a well-used cement path that follows a dry river valley up to Sant Jeroni chapel. Walk a little behind the Sant Jeroni Chapel for a ravine viewpoint.

From Sant Jeroni Chapel the trail continues up passing a ruined church and Verdaguer viewpoint before the last short section takes some stairs all the way up to the Sant Jeroni sumit marker. From here there are 360-degree panoramic views of the Montserrat mountain range.

To return to the Monastery, Follow the same trail down passing Sant Jeroni chapel and take the same path down staying on the concrete trail. This time we follow the Cami de Sant Joan to Sant Jeroni along a ridge of Montserrat with a couple of viewpoints, one looking down towards Colbato town and the other looking down towards the Monastery.

Along this path there is a small right turn off up a forestall trail that leads to some concrete stairs, saint Jacob?s stairs. At the top of Sant Jacobs stairs look for a path to the right leading up to Santa Magdalena viewpoint passing via more hermitage ruins.

At Santa Magdalena viewpoint we again have spectacular views of the surrounding mountain range. Return to the path with the Sant Jacob?s stairs turning right and following the trail halfway down more concrete stairs until you see a path leading along the cliff to the right with wooden railings. Take this path.

Now the route goes through what are Santa Onofre and Sant Joan hermitages ruins built on the side of a cliff face. At the end of the hermitage ruins the path takes steps down to a concrete and gravel trail path passing via Sant Joan chapel and leading gradually down to Sant Joan Funicular superior station.

From Sant Joan funicular the trail continues into Cami de las hermitages with a small incline followed by a gradual decline down to Sant Miquel chapel. A little past the chapel there is a narrow track of about 100 metres that leads to the Sant Miquel Iron cross which has spectacular views of the monastery complex.

Return to the main trail and continue following it down via various monuments back to the monastery.

Allow 4 to 6 hours to complete this route.

It is extremely dry in Montserrat mountain range. Do not throw cigarettes on the ground. it is prohibited to start fires i.e. for cooking or other purposes. Take plenty of water, minimum 2 litres and use suncream.

In the monastery complex there is Montserrat buffet Restaurant directl opposite the Cremallera Station. Also in Plaza L'abat Oliba there is a small cafe that sells sandwiches, drinks and snacks.

Getting To Sant Jeroni from Montserrat Monastery

The quickest way is to get the FGC train From Plaza Espana to Aeri de Montserrat and transfer onto the cable car. This is my recommended route as it offers the most scenic views. However there is also a slower and less scenic cremallera train that departs from Monistrol de Montserrat and arrives at Montserrat monastery via Monistrol vila.

These stations are on the FGC LLobregat Anoia lines.

Weather for Monistrol de Montserrat

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