Be captivated by the exquisite beauty and spirituality of Montserrat, visit a boutique local winery, and enjoy a multi-course Catalan lunch on this intimate full-day tour from Barcelona.

See the spectacular Montserrat first-hand, a place where Mother Nature, religion, history, and the identity of the Catalans collide. On your way to the magical mountain your guide will describe why the place is so important to locals.

Take a short walk to the beautiful Benedictine Monastery, famous for its gothic shapes and incredible views. Step inside the Basilica to touch the sphere of "La Moreneta", the famous black Madonna.

For lunch, head to a beautiful family-run wine estate a few minutes from Montserrat. Enjoy an exquisite tasting menu of favorite Catalan dishes, all paired with organic wines produced at the vineyard.

Spend the afternoon on a spiritual journey of a different kind. Tour the estate's rows of vines and cellar, hearing about the history, soil, climate, and everything that makes this winery so special.

This was a good tour. I would give it a five star but we were not able to go to upper front chapel to view the black Santa Maria. Our guide said she did not have any tickets as they were sold out. She said we might get in if we asked politely to enter as individuals. The gate keeper ticket collector was not about to let us in. She said that our guide and tour company should have gotten tickets ahead. Showed us the list of all the other companies who had. So it goes, I don’t care about what challengers the tour company may have had..not enough lead time..not enough guests to spend the 10E for entrance. I just wanted to see this special part of the exhibit. Felt like the ball was dropped. The lunch food and wine was good but it was 3 course, not 4 as advertised.

It was enough free time in Monserrat. Tour guides were good. Lunch was tasty but nothing special. There were only 3 varieties of wine at the tasting. We tried liqueurs also. I would spend more time in a monastery than wine tasting. But it was great to meet and interact with new people on this tour.

My wife and I went on the full-day tour of Montserrat in June 2022. Our tour guide was Mariana. She was excellent and provided us with a friendly environment and information all day. She was very engaged with the group and got to know everyone over the course of the day. For the tour we visited Montserrat and had some free time to hike and do other things. We then went for a nice 4 course lunch followed by a winery visit. The winery was truly amazing and had wonderful views in a castle setting. We would highly recommend this tour! The meeting point is at the bus station and the transportation is in comfortable air conditioned tour buses.
