On this 8 hours Montserrat wine tour we will discover the magnificent beauty and rock formations of the UNESCO world heritage site Montserrat mountains, which are a stunning and movie like setting for a Basilica church and chapel perched on the mountainside at an altitude of 720m and with over 1000 years of dramatic history. Montserrat is the spiritual heart of Catalunya, and its abbey is home to the mythical 12th century Black Virgin La Moreneta statue, an order of Benedictine monks, and the oldest boys’ choir in Europe called “Escolania de Montserrat”.
You will be picked up in Barcelona in the morning by your private guide and driver who will drive you 1 hour outside of Barcelona to Montserrat, enjoying a scenic drive all the way up to the monastery. Then we guide you through the abbey and see the Virgin of Montserrat.
After visiting the chapel we continue to nearby Oller del Mas winery, located in a castle which dates back from the 10th century. Enjoy a lunch break here enjoying a selection of local delicacies (meal not included). Afterwards you will explore the vineyards which are located just by the house to learn about the production process and other winemaking secrets of this historic winery. Before heading back to Barcelona, you will enjoy a tasting session with three organic wines complemented with local cheeses. At the end of the day we will take you back to Barcelona.
This tour does not require a high amount of walking or wheeling, and it can also be completely tailor-made based on each person preferences. The itinerary also avoids steps and it follows a mostly flat path along the Tour.
