For our accessible Montserrat tour, you will be picked up from Barcelona in the morning by your private guide and driver. We will drive for about 1 hour outside to Montserrat. During the ride, you can enjoy the scenic area all the way up to the monastery. Afterward, we guide you through the abbey and see the Virgin of Montserrat.
Montserrat is the spiritual heart of Catalunya. 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”.
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 with a selection of local delicacies (meal not included). Afterwards you will explore the vineyards which are located just by the house. You will learn about the production process and other winemaking secrets of this historic winery. Before heading back to Barcelona, you can take part in a tasting session with three organic wines complemented with local cheeses.
