Overview
Combining Montserrat Monastery with a winery visit for wine tastings is an unusual combination that’s difficult to arrange independently. This day trip makes it easy: with round-trip air-conditioned transport and a guided tour of Montserrat so you see and learn about all its highlights. Plus, your winery tour includes three tastings, tapas, and dessert, so you don’t need to budget for lunch.
Highlights
  • Montserrat monastery and winery tour from Barcelona
  • Explore the mountain monastery with a guide to learn about its past
  • Great-value: Winery visit includes tour, three tastings, tapas, and dessert
  • Group limited to 16 for a personalized atmosphere
What to Expect
Leave central Barcelona by air-conditioned vehicle and make the scenic journey to the Montserrat Monastery, a Benedictine abbey located high on Mt. Montserrat, just outside the city. On arrival, enjoy a guided tour as you learn how the monastery stands as a cornerstone of Catalan history and spirituality. Take in the basilica—home to the revered ‘Black Madonna’ statue—and the atrium, cloister, and main square. Afterward, continue to Oller de Mas, a winery set in a 10th-century castle. Stroll around the vineyards and delve into the wine-making process as you tour the barrel room and production areas. Finish with a tasting of three quality wines served with an assortment of tapas and a dessert. As you taste and relax, learn the secrets behind each varietal from your host. After a day of sightseeing and wine, your experience concludes at the original departure point in Barcelona.

Loved the tour with Laura. She was very attentive, warm and informative. We started with a entertaining history of Barcelona on the bus ride up to the cog wheel train. While up at the Monastary, Laura gave us a good history of the place. Loved the hike up to the cross on the

Hi Diane! What a nice review!! Thank you verymuch for your kind words! We share your thoughts on Ona! She is so friendly that makes everyone around her feel like home! We are very happy to see you enjoyed the tour with her :) Our guides are full of knowledge (and wine), and they are always willing to answer questions regarding our history and culture. But what makes them special is not everything they know, but how they are able to explain it in a light, entertaining and funny way so every around them learns and laugh at the same time! Thanks a lot for stopping by!
