Full description

Escape to the natural landscape of the Montserrat mountains on a half-day sightseeing and wine tasting tour from Barcelona by bus. Enjoy breathtaking views of the mountain range, taste Catalan wines at a local winery, and walk through historic pathways, learning about the region from your local guide. The strange shaped mountains of Montserrat is the location of a Benedictine monastery that has been a site of pilgrimage for centuries, thanks to its story of the miracles performed by the Virgin Mary and the fabled 12th-century image of Our Lady. After a short visit to this historic site, head to a boutique winery, just a few minutes away, and tour one of the most important wineries in the region. Located in an impressive castle that’s more than 1,000 years old, the winery boasts more than 1,000 acres of beautiful land. Tours are kept to a maximum of 16 people for a more intimate experience, and include a tour of the vineyards and winery, where the local wines become older and wiser. Thanks to your guide, you will sense the history, soil, sun, and rain that influence the 3 wines you will taste. Learn about the upkeep of the vines, the grape harvest, how the French oak barrels impact on the flavor, and more. To keep you on your feet, the tasting table will be laden with the finest Spanish tapas, including the tasting of six traditional dishes and dessert.

Jordi was an unbelievable tour guide, my girlfriend and I are 25 and we absolutely loved the tour. It is definitely something to do for young people also. Aswell as learning about montserrat and wine tasting the insight to Barcelona and it’s history was also very interesting. Thanks once again for a 5 star trip.

Exactly what was described for the 1/2 day tour. David was a wonderful and fun guide!!! From USA and I could understand our guide very well. Very informational and accommodating! Monserrat was beautiful and the vineyard was a great bonus. Tapas was at the vineyard and not a proper wine tasting, but it didn’t matter to us. 1/2 day was long enough.

Great tour! Tour meeting place was very central and they made themselves very noticeable which made it easy to find them. It was raining a little bit as we made our way to Montserrat but the tour guides remained positive which was nice. The mountain is absolutely stunning when you get to the top. If you are scared of heights you may want to close your eyes on the bus ride up. Winery was very beautiful with great views. You get to try three different types of wine and the tour guide did a great job of explaining a bit about each one. You also get an small assembly of tapas and eat them at tables inside the winery.
