Stop At: Abadia de Montserrat, Carretera BP-1121 S/N, 08199 Montserrat Spain

Amaze yourself with the landscape and learn all about its history by the hand of your local English-speaking tour guide. The hour-long guided visit includes a tour of the monastery highlights and basilica of Montserrat. Hear stories and legends about La Moreneta, the carving of a black Virgin Mary that the monks have kept in their temple for centuries. You will have some free time after that, enough to discover the local farmer’s market in which the farmers of the area sell their cheeses and honey, or to keep on enjoying the jaw-dropping views. For those travelers interested in art, the tour allows just about enough time to discover an astonishing collection that Montserrat monks keep inside their museum. Such a hidden gem!

Duration: 2 hours

Pass By: Castlexperience - Wine Tours, St. Montsio 10 Rusc de Turisme, 08002 Barcelona Spain

As you look through the window, the sun hides behind the silhouette of Montserrat massif, outlining its contour against the sky. In between its peaks mysteries, legends and myths dwell in its rocks and caves. Your imagination plays with all the stories and folklore you have heard and seen from its heights. You have contemplated the Catalan lands extending before you; you have learnt about the centuries that have happened in it. Moors, Christians, castles, battles and noblemen. All these stories exudate from the old stones of the long-ago-fortified houses of the region. In there now, like history, vines sink their roots deep in the dry clayish soil. This, in return, contributes to the result of generations of hard work: unique wines that speak of passion, history and tradition. This whole new universe of local flavors still lingers in your mind and, before you realize, it takes you to the world of dreams on your trip back to Barcelona. What an unforgettable morning.

Stop At: Oller del Mas, Carretera Igualada Km 91, 08241 Manresa Spain

Oller del Mas is not a common winery – its superb ecological wines have earned plenty of awards in the recent years. In fact, one of its wines won the “Best Wine in Catalonia” award in 2018. But the cellar is not only special for its wines. You will take a stroll by the vineyards, learn how the wine is made, and discover all of its secrets.

*We work daily with different low-production, family-owned boutique wineries. Due to logistic reasons, you might visit another cellar instead of Oller del Mas.

This tour exceeded our expectations!! Meeting point at the Hard Rock Cafe was easy to find and the tour staff were very organized! The bus used was very comfortable for this all day tour! Once on the bus Mercedes provided an amazing overview of the history of Spain and Barcelona! The views on the drive up the Montserrat and at the monastery were amazing! We were able to hear the boys choir sing and were greatly impressed! We then headed to the winery and had a great time. The wine selection and tapas were fantastic! Aurora was the tour guide for our group and both she and Mercedes did an excellent job of providing information and interacting with our groups all day! This was definitely a highlight of our vacation!
