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 Spanish tapas.

Would really recommend booking this experience! The flow of events was smooth and my family and I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Our tour guide Nerea was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, her facilitation really made this trip a pleasant experience. The other tour guides were helpful and friendly as well so it looks like you’ll be in good hands no matter who you get.

Noria was the best tour guide! She was super knowledgeable of both the history of Barcelona and of Montserrat and the winery we visited. The whole experience was magical—the views from the monastery were breathtaking and the wines at the winery were amazing and a really good price so we brought a few bottles home with us. Even the bus ride there and back was a fun experience. I highly recommend this tour!!!

We had a great guide who was really fun to listen to. The journey to Montserrat was very comfortable by bus. Once at the top you have a fantastic view of the surrounding landscape. We walked to the cross, where you can take great photos. Then we went by bus to the winery, which is one of the oldest. It was very nice here too. However, the wines at the tasting didn't knock your socks off, I wouldn't get up for that again. But there is also a beer (cava), which tasted extremely good :) All in all, a very nice tour, which is to be recommended.
