Full description

Escape to the natural landscape of the Montserrat mountains on a half-day sightseeing and wine tasting tour from Barcelona by bus. 

Enjoy breathtaking views of the mountain range, taste Catalan wines at a local winery, and walk through historic pathways, learning about the region from your local guide.

The strange shaped mountains of Montserrat is the location of a Benedictine monastery that has been a site of pilgrimage for centuries, thanks to its story of the miracles performed by the Virgin Mary and the fabled 12th-century image of Our Lady.

After a short visit to this historic site, head to a boutique winery, just a few minutes away, and tour one of the most important wineries in the region. Located in an impressive castle that’s more than 1,000 years old, the winery boasts more than 1,000 acres of beautiful land.

Tours are kept to a maximum of 20 people for a more intimate experience, and include a tour of the vineyards and winery, where the local wines become older and wiser.

Thanks to your guide, you will sense the history, soil, sun, and rain that influence the 3 wines you will taste. 

Learn about the upkeep of the vines, the grape harvest, how the French oak barrels impact on the flavor, and more. To keep you on your feet, the tasting table will be laden with Spanish tapas.

Giulle was our guide and she was wonderful. A member of our group was in a wheelchair and the whole team was patient and kind and helpful throughout the tour. The our was worth it to avoid parking. There were long lines waiting to park and some were walking very far uphill to get from the car to the basilica. The winery on the way back was a relaxing stop. The scenery to and from was beautiful and it was nice to have someone tell us about it. I would highly recommend this tour for those who have limited mobility or just want to sit back and look out the window.

We enjoyed this trip very much, guides were very helpful and informative, everything was on time. We had a very good sightseeing of Montserrat and sufficient self-time. The vinery was impressive, wine and food delicious. We were back to Barcelona early afternoon so there was time for more activities there. Half a day for Montserrat is enough for the place not to be missed!

Highly recommend this experience. The tour guides were funny, knowledgable, and personable. I never felt rushed at either of the stops and had plenty of time to explore. Both stops were beautiful and as someone who does not like public transportation, the bus was extremely comfortable. I would recommend to anyone visitng Barcelona!
