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 the village of Monistrol de Montserrat, just an hour away from Barcelona.

  • 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.

From Monistrol, you will take the cogwheel train to the Monastery and enjoy great views of the countryside and the mountain.

Once arrived, you will sample four traditional liquors and the "coca de Montserrat", a sweet midday snack.

Follow your passionate guide on a walking tour through the Monastery, and learn all about its history, legends and the importance of this remarkable landmark in the development of Catalonia. Then, enjoy an hour of free time 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 - an impressive sculpture of cement blocks stacked together.

  • 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, 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.

At this point, the group will be divided (depending on your booking choice):

Option 1 - Lunch:

  • Enjoy a full meal like the locals do at a restaurant near the winery! Indulge in a fabulous multi-course Catalan meal, paired with regional wine. The homemade, local cuisine will ensure a gastronomical adventure that contents every personal taste.

Option 2 - Tapas:

  • During the wine tasting at the winery, enjoy a delicious local cold tapas lunch and a dessert. This is the perfect option if your schedule is a bit tighter.

In both options, our expert guide will take you through an exclusive visit of the vineyards and the old family cellar, as well as some private areas of the castle.

Before returning to Barcelona, you will experience a wine-tasting course where you will taste three excellent quality red wines, combined with three portions of artisanal cheese.
