Description

We will start this fascinating tour in Barcelona, at Plaza Catalunya (in front of the Hard Rock Cafe) from where we will depart in a bus to the National Park of Montserrat, just 45 minutes far from Barcelona.

  • Visit of Montserrat:

Discover Montserrat, the most important and magnificent mountain in Catalonia. Famous for its beautiful views, it is considered to be the cornerstone of the Catalan culture, history, nature, and spirituality.

Start your guided tour with a short walk to the Monastery, where you can take in the spectacular 360 degrees view at 3000ft above sea level, as well as the feel of spirituality Montserrat has to offer.

Enjoy an extended visit throughout the Basilica and Monastery, after which you will have time to explore the site on your own. There are many activities to choose from – you may want to explore the monastery further and see the famous Black Madonna, visit the museum, make your way to the holy cave, ride a funicular to the top of the mountain, or shop in the Farmer's Market.

At the end of the visit, we will attend the incredible performance of the Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest Boys' Choir in Europe.

  • Visit of Oller del Mas:

We will head to Oller del Mas, one of the most important and beautiful wineries in the region, not far from Montserrat.

Located in an impressive thousand years old Castle, this organic cellar has some of its original walls from the 10th century and the winery reigns over 1000 acres of land, with a golf course open to the public.

Before visiting, you will stop at the clubhouse restaurant to enjoy an exquisite three-course Catalan meal topped with wines produced organically from the vineyards.

In the afternoon, our expert enologists will guide you to an exclusive visit of the cellar. You will take a stroll by the beautiful vineyards, learn how the wine is made, and discover all of its secrets. Did you know that the amazing organic wines of Oller del Mas have earned plenty of awards in the recent years? In fact, one of its wines has recently become one of the five “vi de finca” (estate wine distinction) of Catalonia!

Last but not least, before returning to Barcelona, you will experience a wine-tasting course where you will taste three excellent quality wines accompanied by artisanal cheese.

In a few words, this tour is the perfect combination of natural beauty, fine gastronomy and delicious wine!
