Description

Meet your guide in downtown Barcelona for a full-day tour including Torres Wine Cellars, Montserrat Monastery and Sitges.

  • Torres Wine Cellars:

Relax in a comfortable bus during the journey to the famous Torres Wine Cellars located in the heart of Penedés area. Discover and experience the fascinating world of the wine through your senses.

Torres Wine Cellars visit begins with an audiovisual introduction to the history of Torres family and their wineries from their beginnings to the present.

Continue with a multisensory experience on an exciting journey into the Middle Ages as you learn the best kept secrets of the winemaking process since its origins and see the aging barrels of the best wines of state.

Torres Wine Cellars experience ends with the tasting of two delicious wines.

  • Montserrat:

You will be taken to Montserrat Mountain which rises majestically to 4,051 feet (1,236 meter). You will be impressed by the strange and varied forms of the rocks of Montserrat that were shaped by the wind and the rain during centuries. Popular imagination has seen human or animal shape in some of these peaks, giving those names and inventing legends to explain their fantastic origins.

Visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th century Romanesque carving of Verge Moreneta also known as the Black Madonna. The Benedict sanctuary of Montserrat has been founded in 1025 and provides a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia who is enshrined in the monastery's Royal Basilica. The little monastery soon began to receive pilgrims and visitors who contributed to the spread of stories of miracles and wonders performed by the Virgin. Today, Montserrat has been modernized to continue attending to the needs to pilgrims, one thousand years after it was originally founded.

You will be given 3 hours of free time for lunch and enjoy by your own the multiple options that this privileged place offers. Do not miss the audiovisual exhibition about the history and creation of Montserrat and taste typical liquors of Montserrat made by the monks of the monastery.

On some days the Escolania of Montserrat, one of the oldest boys choirs in Europe (XIV century) sings in the monastery and so you may be fortunate enough to catch one of their delightful performances. Their timeframe is subjected to the school calendar and special events of the choir and monastery.

  • Sitges:

You will spend the rest of the afternoon at Sitges, without a doubt one of the most beautiful sailor villages of the Catalonian coast with beautiful beaches, a vibrant cultural live, good food and nice and unique shops.

Enjoy its micro climate and explore its picturesque old town center with its narrow streets together with your guide.

You will be dropped off in downtown Barcelona at around 20:00.

A few days before I left for Spain, I happened to come across City Discovery - the Montserrat Monastery Guided Visit + Sitges and Torres Wine Cellars Day Trip. If you are traveling to Barcelona, you must add this guided tour to your itinerary. It is hard to find bilingual tours so this instantly made perfect sense to me since I was traveling with my Spanish-speaking mother. First, I totally loved our tour guide, Lea, she had a wealth of information and had in-depth history on the landmarks we visited, specifically, Montserrat Monastery and Sitges. I also loved the free time we were given to explore on our own...getting up close and personal to the Black Madonna was an incredible moment. The Torres Wine Cellars Day trip was conducted by one of Torres' in house tour guides...extremely knowledgeable folks as well. All in all, I was highly satisfied and would highly recommend this tour and I will definitely come back to City Discovery to book my future guided tour needs.

The tour was very well organized. The tour guide was very informative. You have the opportunity to learn about all three of the... features that you would otherwise not have the opportunity to learn if you visited the sites on your own. The wine tour at Torres was very interesting. The Montserrat monastery has a wonderful view from the top. The final portion of the tour to Sitges was our favourite part of the day. This little town is quaint - right along the ocean. There are many shops and restaurants to visit. You could weave your way up and down the streets for several hours. You can also sit an enjoy a beverage along the ocean or if you like you could enjoy some sun on the beach. We would have enjoyed a bit more time on the tour for this part of the day. We were not able to see all of the sites of Sitges that we would have like to have seen. Overall, we really enjoyed the day and the tour group. The group was small so we were all able to participate and learn about the features offered through the day. more
