What to expect

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 view – ideal for 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 attend the performance by l’Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe.

After Montserrat, you will head to the grounds Oller del Mas, one of the most important and beautiful wineries in the region. After a short half an hour drive we you'll make a stop at Oller del Mas restaurant where you will be served a fabulous multi-course Catalan meal accompanied by regional wine. This is by no means not your typical “tour food”! It is the tour providers challenge to thrill all our clients with and unforgettable feast.

In the afternoon, your expert guides will be in charge of the visit to the cellar. Oller del Mas is not a common winery – its superb organic 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” (estate wine distinction) of Catalonia. 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 10th century originals. You will take a stroll by the vineyards and learn how the wine is made

Last but not least comes the wine tasting, where you will taste three organic wines paired with artisanal cheese. 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 friends back home.
