Full description
Montserrat is the most important mountain in Catalonia. It is a unique massif, famous for its gothic shapes and breathtaking views, and is known as the symbol of the Catalan people. You will experience it first-hand on a full-day tour that makes it apparent to you why Montserrat is so closely linked to the Catalan identity. On the way to Montserrat, your guide will introduce you to this "magic mountain" where Mother Nature meets religion, history, and the identity of the Catalans. Enjoy the stunning landscape of this Natural Park. The guided tour includes a short walk to the monastery where you can enjoy the spectacular views and get a true feel of the spirituality Montserrat has to offer. After Montserrat, head to a local, family-run winery, just a few minutes away from Montserrat, and one of the most important and beautiful wineries in the region.  In the local restaurant you will be served with an exquisite selected tasting menu featuring favorites of the region paired with wines produced organically from the vineyard. In the afternoon, your expert guide will guide you to visit the cellar and take you through the vines for a beautiful walk. You will learn how the wine is made and you will discover all its secrets. Then visit the winery, where its chateaux wines become older and wiser. Here you may sit, close your eyes, and enjoy the wonderful miracle of the various wines offered, tasting the history, soil, climate, and everything else that makes this winery so special.

Went on this tour on 4-14-2022. Toni with Castleexperience was our guide and he was excellent. Solo traveler friendly. I could spend a full day in Montserrat, but the half day tour allowed us to see key points of interest. If you want to see the choir, research and reserve in advance. Montserrat is a stunning location with many options for things to do while there. The day I was there we went to a farmer’s market and enjoyed local cheeses and honey. The winery lunch and tasting at Oller del Mas was also wonderful. Beautiful property with very modern tasting rooms and a great gift shop. The initial bus ride to Montserrat was shared with other groups but was no problem. All the guides shared their knowledge with everyone during the ride. The ride back to Barcelona was just our small group.

We had so much fun on this day trip tour. Our tour guide was Nuria and she was so sweet and excited about all she had to share. The trip itself was well organized, informative yet allowed us our own time to explore. We met some wonderful people and really enjoyed the wine tasting and lunch. If you have an extra day in Barcelona this was worth the trip for sure.
