  • 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.

    Cancellation Policy

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

Our guide Agnes was wonderful. We had a couple of hours to hike or do something else. Now La Vacanza Travel doesn't have to do with Montserrat. I was disappointed. I thought that the church would be more and they have built contemporary buildings so that they can rent them out. If you want to hear the boys choir, you need to be in the sanctuary about 30minutes before. With all of the money they are making, they should have a speaker system so everyone can hear. People are so rude. They came in and wouldn't stop talking. Others were trying to shut them up with shhh. Now the scenery and mountains are beautiful. I expected more. I was disappointed. If I had it to do over I would save my money and try to get a different trip with Agnes.

This was a terrific tour - a perfect way to spend a day outside Barcelona! Montserrat was surreal - we arrived in a dense fog and then watched as the monastery and the mountains incredible drip-castle mountains appeared out of the mist. Our guide - Dani - was a delight - charming, informative, and eager to see that we had a good time. We loved sampling the liqueurs the monks make - delicious! The lunch was very nice and the winery tour, with generous sample pours, was a perfect way to wind up a day spent with new friends. It also made for very relaxing bus ride back to the city...

We had a wonderful time on this tour! Our tour leader Agnes was great. She had a wealth of knowledge relating to the architecture, history and legends of Monsterrat Monastery as well as the process of grapes, wine and winemaking from the winery which we visited. She was fun and made our tour an enjoyable day!
