  • What You Can Expect

    Begin your tour in Plaza Catalunya, where you will hop aboard an air-conditioned bus to the National Park of Montserrat, just an hour away from Barcelona. A unique massif famous for its gothic shapes, beautiful views, and trails, Montserrat is said to be the most important mountain in Catalonia.

    Upon arrival, your guided tour consists of an extended visit throughout the Basilica and Monastery, with free time to explore the site on your own afterward. There are many activities to choose from – you may want to explore the monastery further, visit the museum, make your way to the holy cave, ride a funicular to the top of the mountain, or shop at the farmer’s market. At the end of the visit you'll attend a performance by l’Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe.*

    After Montserrat, head to the winery estate of Oller del Mas. Located in a castle dating back to the 10th century, the winery is home to 1,000 acres of land and a public golf course. Make your way into the restaurant, where you will be served a multi-course, regional menu paired with wines produced organically from the vineyard.

    Following your meal, take a stroll through the vineyards and visit the cellar for a guided tour of the estate's wines. Learn about the production process and other winemaking secrets.

    Before heading back to Barcelona, enjoy a tasting session with three organic wines paired with local cheeses. You will be returned at the end of the day to your original departure point.


    * Please note that l'Escolania does not sing on Saturdays and several dates throughout the year.

    Cancellation Policy

    Package is cancellable prior to three days from the commencement of the service.

It was a long day 10 hours, but well worth it. Riding on an air conditioned bus. If you have any level of motion sickness, take something to help with that. The road to Montserrat is a twisting mountain road and can cause some discomfort. The scenery was awesome, though. Montserrat is gorgeous and Miguel, our guide, was knowledgeable, funny and a pleasure to listen to. After arriving, there is a 45 minute or so guided tour and then about 2 hours on your own to discover the Montserrat area. We went up the funicular to Sant Joan but didn't make it all the way on the walk. It's lovely to see Montserrat from this height. After departing Montserrat, we stopped at a club house where we had tapas delicious and wonderful conversation with the other people on the tour. Then a short walk to the winery and castle. The wine-tasting was very relaxed and has a lot of good information. I would highly recommend this tour.

our tour guide Alex was exceptional. so knowledgeable and great personality!! the monastery exceeded all my expectations. great hiking also.
the lunch was a little too long and it was way too hot to be sitting for so long with so many courses, I'd skip that part.
the wine tasting was in a castle and was pretty cool, not the greatest wine but again, Alex was very knowledgeable.

Great experience with a great tour company. Marta was an awesome guide and Montserrat is more than worth the trip. Please note that though the tour is small group 15 or so people, transportation to and from the sites are on larger buses combined with other tour groups. Not a big deal at all for us, but something to consider if you want a more private experience. Highly recommend!

Fantastic day out with our guide Marc. We were a bit disappointed that the funicular was not working on the day we went but that wasn't anything to do with the tour. Montserrat is an amazing place , very busy and hot on the day we went but it was a Sunday. Lunch at the vineyard was excellent and we learnt a lot from the wine tasting. Highly recommend.
