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 one hour away from Barcelona.

  • Visit of Montserrat:

Montserrat is the most important mountain in Catalonia, a unique massif famous for its beautiful views, ideal for all sort of treks and climbing. 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 enjoy the spectacular views and feel the spirituality Montserrat has to offer you. Discover the Basilica - inside of which sits the famous Black Madonna sculpture, and its outstanding façade. See the Atrium - where many events of the country's history are depicted, as well as the 15th century cloister and the Santa Maria square.

Enjoy around half an hour of free time at the end of the guided visit, to browse the Monastery's souvenir shop, get a cup of coffee, discover local cheese and honey from Farmer's Market, or soak in the magnificent views from the famous Stairway to Heaven.

  • Visit of Oller del Mas Castle:

After Montserrat, we head to the Oller del Mas Castle - one of the most important and beautiful wineries in the region, and just a few minutes away 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.

Our expert enologists will guide you to an exclusive visit of the vineyards and cellars, and they will take you through the barrels of wines for a beautiful walk. You will also discover the wine production and you will learn everything about this fascinating world.

Before we return to Barcelona, you will experience a wine-tasting course where you will taste three excellent quality red wines, combined with the best cold iberican meats of the country, tapas and pastry for dessert.

Sample six delicious pieces of pà amb tomàquet (Catalan bread with rubbed tomato), topped with fresh ingredients such as cured meats, goat cheese and jam, roasted peppers, wild asparagus, and tuna fish.

Peter

It's a very nice trip to the wine yard and castle, although it's a little bit windy and cold that day. Our guide *** int...rodced from the history of the country to the wine making procedures. We also learned some tips on how to evaluate a wine. Thanks for everything!I would definitely recommend to my friends! more

Han

An excellent tour. From the meeting point in central Barcelona until we returned 6 hours later we were very well looked after. Our... guide, ***, was exceptionally well informed about Monserrat and also on the wine tasting experience. He had a wealth of information and was also able to answer all of our questions. more

Wendy

The tour was extraordinary! We were a small group, so everything was very understandable because we could talk freely with the gui...de. The sights, the winery, the wine, everything was just amazing! I totally recommend it 100% . Would do it again. If you choose to do it ask for Clara as your guide. She is just amazing. She knows how to explain and tell a story and not make it boring. A really fun woman! more

GABRIELA

Very nice experience if you have little time.

Larisa

Would definitely recommend this trip to family and friends. Our tour guides were brilliant! Clara was so knowledgeable about Mont...serrat and she was excellent during the wine tasting. Xavier was so entertaining on the coach, he knew so much about Barcelona and made the trip for us! I would definitely take this trip again, great value for money and well organised. more

CityDiscovery

Absolutely loved this tour! Our tour guide was phenomenal! He seemed to be very knowledgable of the areas we were visiting and had... a sense of humor. We spent an adequate amount of time in Montserrat with an informative tour around the cathedral. I would recommend visiting Montserrat in general while visiting Barcelona.
The wine tasting in Oller del Mas was great. There was an amazing view of Montserrat from the vineyard, and it was interesting to hear about the history of the castle. The tapas were cold by the time we were seated, but they paired well with the wines we tasted. If you’re not a fan of red wine then would not recommend this tour; however, I enjoyed the wines we tasted.

A great tour to take with family and friends. Comfortable bus ride to/from destination, informative tour guides, beautiful sights ...and tasty wine and tapas. more

Dawn

The tour was well-paced and fun. Xavier created a very light and humorous atmosphere at all times. He matched our group's cra...ziness and humor. He allowed us to really enjoy the wines plus the fantastic views where we felt like we were the only people in the Oller Del Mas Castle. A definite must and if you are lucky, you will be assigned Xavier ???? more

Carmela

XAVIER WAS AWESOME!! hahaha but anyway, the wines were great and we bought two bottles - red and white, great tapas too. Check out... their beer as well. Great historical walking tour in Montserrat and the different sights along the way. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! more

Greg Joseph

the tour was amazing, we started off with montserrat then headed to cava land. the tour especially our tourguide made everything s...o pleasant and fun, we highly recommend this tour. we were a big group but good thing they halfed the group and had 2 guides to make the tour more personal. wish we had more time in montserrat though more

nina

Our tour guide Xavier was great. He spoke very good english and was very knowledgeable. The views during the bus ride was spectac...ular, although I slept most of the way but the pictures that my friends took were amazing. I found the Montserrat tour short. Would've loved to have an hour of free time.
Oller dl Mas was also wonderful. Everyone was so nice. The place was clean and it wasn't crowded. The guides made sure that there were no 2 groups in one place at the same time. They were very respectful of each others groups. The ride back seemed shorter but then again I was sleeping. Not because I was not interested but because I was just tired.
I also found out that there are hotels in Montserrat, I would've loved to spend a day or two to explore the place and hear mass.

Maria

Fantastic half day out!! The free time at the monastery was perhaps a little short but we still had time to walk up to the near by... cross on the hill and do a spot of souvenir shopping. The wine tasting as the castle was very authentic/exciting and educational! We also had a fantastic tour guide called Marta, who was very funny and clearly had great knowledge of the sites and wines !! more

Miriam

Lovely Tour guide!! Agnes

Ronel

The tour was very worthwhile and the tour company was very accommodating and friendly. Our tour guide was Xavier and he was engagi...ng, informative, and humorous. We really enjoyed going up to Montserrat and enjoying the views and buildings while learning about the history of the mountain. The views were spectacular and the mountain itself was a formidable sight. Afterwards, we found the visit to the winery fun and a good way to end the trip. Xavier gave us a lot of information regarding the process of making various wines and the particular winery we were visiting. During the wine tasting he gave us the necessary tools to make our own judgements about the wines we tried. It is also nice traveling by bus to Montserrat as the alternatives are much more time consuming and are less comfortable. Altogether a very fun trip. Definitely recommend! more
