Does anybody know whether a day trip to Montserrat monastery would be suitable for a person with a disability? My friend and I are going to Barcelona soon, and he has a mild physical disability. He can mostly make it around by himself but if he has to go up steps or other such obstacles he needs a bit of help to keep his balance. So I'm wondering, if we go to Montserrat, will he be able to go up the mountain? I know the cable cars wouldn't be suitable, but I've heard conflicting opinions about the funicular train. Also, I've heard of the funicular train, and the cog-wheel train; does anybody know whether these are the same thing?

Thanks so much for any advice you can give me.
