Montserrat Monastery Guided Visit + Wine Tour and Tapas at Oller del Mas Castle (Small Groups)

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. ...Ricky R., USA – See more reviews

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.
