Located just one hour away from central Barcelona, Montserrat is considered to be the most important mountain in Catalonia. A unique massif famous for its spirituality, its gothic shapes and beautiful views, also ideal for all sort of treks and climbing.

The guided tour consists of an extended visit throughout the Basilica and Monastery, after which you will have time to explore the site on your own. There are many activities to choose from – you may want to explore the monastery further, visit the museum, make your way to the holy cave, ride a funicular to the top of the mountain, or shop in the Farmer’s Market. At the end of the visit you will have the opportunity to listen to l’Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe.

After Montserrat, we head to the grounds of Oller del Mas, one of the most important and beautiful wineries in the region. After a short half an hour drive we will make a stop at Oller del Mas restaurant where you will be served a fabulous multi-course local meal accompanied by regional wine. Believe us, this is by no means your typical “tour food”! It is our challenge to thrill all our clients with and unforgettable feast.

In the afternoon, our expert guides will be in charge of the visit to the cellar. Oller del Mas is not a common winery – its superb ecological wines have earned plenty of awards in the recent years. In fact, one of its wines has recently become one of the five “vi de finca”, the highest recognition for wines in Spain. But the cellar is not only special for its wines. Located in an impressive castle that dates back to over a thousand years ago, some of its walls still are 10th century originals. You will take a stroll by the vineyards, learn how the wine is made, and discover all of its secrets.

Last but not least comes the wine tasting, where you will taste three ecological wines. It does not matter if you have been to a hundred tastings before or if this is your first one – your guide will provide you with a few valuable hints that will surely impress your acquaintances back home.

I’d have to say we had the best tour guide- Pep was amazing! He was full of knowledge, so funny, and a great photographer:) Montserrat is so beautiful and the wine tour was great fun! Everything was well organized- we’d do this again for sure.

Amazing Tour

★★★★★ Reviewed by Madolyn on 2019-10-22
Montserrat was absolutely beautiful and our tour guide Laura made it even more amazing. She spoke really good English and was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. She had a great sense of humor and made everyone smile and laugh. The bus to travel in was very nice and clean. The lunch was good and had options for vegetarians, etc. The winery was a local family winery that we got to tour and learn a lot about. The wines were organic and they take a lot of pride in that. They were great wines. I would highly recommend taking this tour. You won’t regret it.

Montserrat and Wine Tasting

★★★★★ Reviewed by Beverly on 2019-10-21
We truly enjoyed our tour of Montserrat and the winery! Luis was an excellent guide and we were very impressed with the amount of information and humor he packed into the tour. The bus, lunch, and overall itinerary made for a very memorable experience. Luis also provides a very clear and concise history of Barcelona from founding through the Catalonia separation referendum, sentences for which were delivered during our tour and which impacted the region during our stay. It was very helpful to have this context and perspective on Barcelona.
