Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Abadia de Montserrat, Montserrat, Catalonia

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

Stop At: Oller del Mas, Manresa, Bages, Catalonia

it’s time to head to Oller del Mas winery, located half an hour away from the monastery in the middle of the Barcelona’s region low lands. The winery just happens to be a restored 10th century castle (yes, welcome to Europe!) that has been owned by the same family for thirty-six generations. No more spoilers though – your guide will be the one in charge to unveil almost every secret this picturesque location has to offer during the wine tour. Learning about the steps and curiosities of Spanish wine-making can only be topped by a tasting of the final product – their ecological wines! You will have the opportunity to try three traditional wines from D.O. Pla de Bages, the wine region at the feet of the Montserrat range. Wine will be accompanied by a selection of traditional tapas, handmade with seasonal ingredients from the area.

Duration: 2 hours

Pass By: Castlexperience - Wine Tours, Barcelona, Catalonia

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.

– We had a great tour with Marta. We had more free time at Montserrat that we expected, which was great! The winery location is beautiful and the tasting was educational and delicious. Having a vegan diet, they did a great job of providing us a wonderful cold tapas lunch.

Booked this day trip on Easter. What a wonderful way to spend the day inside the beautiful church hearing the choir boys sing! Truly an amazing experience and a must see. We then went to a beautiful vineyard for some wine tasting. Maria, our tour guide was fantastic! Wonderful way to end the day with some wine and tapas!

Thoroughly enjoyed our day on this tour! Would definitely recommend! Marta (and the other tour guides on the bus) were awesome! Funny and very informative! Had plenty of time to wander around the grounds of Monserrat and enjoy the beautiful views! And we thoroughly enjoyed our tapas lunch and wine sampling at the winery afterwards! Was a fun day!

Albert Perez was our guide and provided excellent historical information and was obviously well known and liked by all people we encountered. He seemed to know everyone! Not only did he provide tour information but offered personal information about the areas as well. Would definitely like him as a guide on all our tours!
