Should we take a day trip to Montserrat or Carcassonne while visiting Barcelona?

Continuing on my Spain theme, I'd like to know if any of you have been to Carcassonne, France or Montserrat, Spain (or both!) If so, which one should we visit? While we are visiting Barcelona next month, we'd like to spend one day away from the city. I've always wanted to visit Carcassonne, so I thought we could make the 3 hour drive there. However, I've heard that Montserrat monestary is an amazing sight to behold (and it's closer). So, MeFi friends, what should we do? FYI - we plan on renting a car to drive to Carcassonne or taking the train to Montserrat. Thanks!
