What To Expect
Meet your guide at Plaça Catalunya.
Discover Caves Codorniu where winemaking and vineyards have been producing since 1551. The cathedral of cava has a very singular architecture and landscape. You'll get delighted by its Modernista-style buildings.
Here, learn about the whole process of winemaking, from grape pressing to labelling the bottle. Visit the underground cellars by a small electric train. Finally taste cava method champenoise wine.
Then, go to Montserrat. The mountain of Montserrat is situated 45km northwest of Barcelona. This multi-peaked mountain is also a unique Natural Park plenty of shapes, caves, stairs and paths. You can enjoy wonderful views from the top of it as well as its own weird shapes and rounded peaks. A unique visit!
Montserrat is a Benedictine monastery nearly 1000 years old. Montserrat is thriving with culture: paintings, gold lamps, decorated chapels and so on. Enjoy also the library of 300,000 volumes and the museum where El Greco, Dali, Picasso and other treasures from ancient Egypt can be found.
The visit will coincide with the Boys' Choir Midday Concert, except on Saturday as the boy's choir doesn't sing.
On arrival your guide will give a tour to the main places such as the museum with a great collection of paintings, the different bars, restaurants and shops that are located there and also the monastery and basilica, two of the main attractions.
The guide will give explanations outside the basilica as silence must be kept inside it. You'll be shown the Black Madonna, also known as La Moreneta, which represents the patron saint of Catalonia. This figure is very popular because in honour of her, Gregorian chants will be signing every day.
Enjoy free time for lunch and to dedicate to the aspects of this beautiful and spiritual place that attract them most.
Then, you will be dropped off at the meeting point.
