Extended Montserrat, Tapas & Wine
Durations: 7 Hour(s)
Group Size: 1+
Set out from Barcelona around 10 am for a day that combines a visit to Montserrat mountain and monastery. Enjoy wonderful tapas and a wine tasting experience in a 10th century castle surrounded by nature.
Your tour departs from central Barcelona, from which we will head for the village of Monistrol de Montserrat. From Monistrol we will take the â€śCremallera de Montserratâ€ť, a cogwheel train offering great views of the countryside and the mountain. Once at the Monastery your guides will then transmit their passion and knowledge of the landmark to you â€“ history, legends and the importance of this site in the development of Catalonia. After walking through the monastery, you will have some free time for shopping at the Farmerâ€™s Market or taking a few pictures at the Stairway to Heaven. If you are lucky, you will even have the chance to attend the performance of l'Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest Boys' Choir in Europe.*
*Please note that lâ€™Escolania does not sing on Saturdays, school holidays, and several dates throughout the year.
Oller del Mas Cellar
After Montserrat, you will head to Oller del Mas Cellar. Located in a 10th century castle at the feet of Montserrat, this organic family-run winery is surely one of a kind. Upon arrival, you will be offered a welcome drink with an artisanal cheese platter. Your local guide will then lead a visit to the vineyards, the old family cellar, and certain private areas of the castle. To end this perfect day, you will sample three chĂ˘teau organic wines served with a delicious local cold tapas lunch. Any dietary restrictions are catered for on this tour.
