What to expect

Your tour departs from central Barcelona, from which you will head for the village of Monistrol de Montserrat. From Monistrol you will take the “Cremallera de Montserrat”, a cogwheel train with great views of the countryside and the mountain.

Once at the Montserrat Monastery, your guide will provide plenty of information about the location during the guided visit – history, legends and the importance of this site in the development of Catalonia. After walking through the monastery, and visiting a couple of viewpoints, you will get back to the bus.

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 château organic wines served with a delicious local cold tapas lunch. Any dietary restrictions are catered for on this tour.
