What You Can Expect

Begin your tour in Plaça Catalunya, where you will hop aboard an air-conditioned bus to the Natural Park of the Mountain 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 have the chance to attend a performance by l’Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe.*

After Montserrat, head to the estate winery of Oller del Mas. Located in a castle dating back to the 10th century, the winery is home to 1,500 acres of land and a public golf course. Make your way into the restaurant, where you will be served a multi-course, regional menu.

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.

Tour guide was well organized and easy to find at meeting place. Our guide, Jordi, was terrific well informed, local to the area and proud to share what makes it special with others. He provided tips on local cheeses and spirits we might want to try and he organized our time to get the most out of our visit, inside and out, at Montserrat. Lunch was good served with plenty of wine. The small glass included in your place setting is for soup, which locals drink like a beverage. Don't ur wine in it! : The Oller dl Mas winery housed in a 1000 year old castle was great. We toured parts of the castle including climbing to the top of the tower to catch the sunset. The wine tasting was informative and fun led by Jordi also and the wine was delicious. We picked up a couple bottles and smuggled one onto our cruise ship later in the week to enjoy at sea. Merci Jordi!

It was a fabulous excursion! The monastery was breathtaking and hearing the Boy's Choir was a highlight. The views from atop the mountain were amazing! We totally enjoyed the visit to the winery. The guide was outstanding. Definitely a must when you are in Barcelona!

We had a great time! The bus was comfortable and offered great views going up the mountain. Take the left side seats to get the better views on the way up. Most of the info we needed to know about Montserrat was given to us on the bus. Once out of the bus, we split into three groups. Our group of 8 went with Agnes. She allowed us enough time to explore Montserrat on our own, which was great. It was a bonus to hear the famous boys' choir sing in the church. We then stopped for lunch near the winery. We had a great time getting to know each other over lunch. Next and last stop was the castle of the winery where we sat down to sample the wines they produced there. We also got some wine appreciation tips from Agnes. It was dark by the time we headed back for Barcelona. My husband and I are Catholics so we like visiting places of religious significance. We're glad we did this one. Highly recommended!
