The best choice for a late start and those looking for a relaxing experience.
Set out from Barcelona just after 10am for a day that combines a visit to Montserrat Mountain and monastery with a wonderful gastronomical and wine tasting experience in a 10th century castle surrounded by nature.
Your tour departs from central Barcelona, from which we will head for the village of Monistrol de Montserrat. From Monistrol we will take the “Cremallera de Montserrat”, a cogwheel train offering great views of the countryside and the mountain. Once at the Monastery your guides will then transmit their passion and knowledge of the landmark to you – history, legends and the importance of this site in the development of Catalonia. After walking through the monastery, you will have some free time for shopping at the Farmer’s Market or taking a few pictures at the Stairway to Heaven.
It is now time for food and wine! Before tour all participants will be given choice to enjoy cold tapas lunch (included) or to enjoy full meal lunch (additional fee) which includes a fabulous multi-course local meal accompanied by regional wine at a restaurant near the winery. The homemade, local cuisine will ensure a gastronomical adventure that contents every personal taste. Please note that we can cater for any dietary restriction.
A visit and a wine tastinlg at Oller del Mas Cellar is included in both options. Located in a 10th century castle at the feet of Montserrat, this ecological family-run winery is surely one of a kind. Your local guide will 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 ecological wines.
