Overview

Enjoy a relaxing, scenic getaway from bustling Barcelona on this small-group tour to Montserrat, a beautiful nearby mountain. Here, visit the Montserrat Monastery and a boutique winery. Tour the gorgeous vineyards and head to the wine cellar to learn about wine production and taste three exquisite wines and a local tapas lunch.

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.

Toni, our guide, was very knowledgeable, informative, helpful, funny, and caring of our needs while on the tour. He provided us enough trivia and interesting facts about the place, gave us all the options for our free time, and made other recommendations, too. Best one we've had, so far!
