What you can expect
Set out from Barcelona just after 10 am for a day that combines a visit to Montserrat Mountain and monastery with a wonderful tapas and wine tasting experience in a 10th century castle surrounded by nature.
Your tour departs from central Barcelona, from which we will head for the village of Monistrol de Montserrat. From Monistrol we will take the “Cremallera de Montserrat”, a cogwheel train offering great views of the countryside and the mountain. Once at the Monastery your guides will then transmit their passion and knowledge of the landmark to you during the guided visit – history, legends and the importance of this site in the development of Catalonia. After walking through the monastery, you will have some free time for shopping at the Farmer’s Market or taking a few pictures at the Stairway to Heaven. You will have the opportunity to listen to l’Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe*.
*L’Escolania does not sing on Saturdays, school holidays, and several dates throughout the year.
Boutique winery tour
After Montserrat, you will head to a family-run winery. Upon arrival, your local guide will then lead a visit to the vineyards and winery premises. To end this perfect day, you will sample three château wines served with a delicious local cold tapas lunch. Any dietary restrictions are catered for on this tour.
