Montserrat, Food & Wine
Montserrat is the most important mountain in Catalonia. A unique massif famous for its gothic shapes, beautiful views, ideal for all sort of treks, and climbing. For many around the world it is a spiritual mountain rife with mystical stories that span from pre-historic times to our days.
The tour begins in Barcelona, Plaza Catalunya (in front of the Hard Rock Café) from where we depart in a bus to the National Park of Montserrat, just a 1 hour drive away from Barcelona.
At Montserrat there are many activities to choose from, about which you will get plenty of information from your guide to enjoy during your free time. You may want to explore the monastery further, visit the holy cave or ride a funicular to the top of the mountain and enjoy a 360o view of the area at 3000ft above sea level. The guided tour starts with a short walk to the monastery where you can enjoy the spectacular views and get a true feel of the spirituality Montserrat has to offer.
After Montserrat we head to Oller del Mas Castle, one of the most important and beautiful wineries in the region, just 30 minutes away from Montserrat. Located in an impressive Castle that dates back to over a thousand years ago, some of its walls still 10th century originals. The winery reigns over 1000 acres of land, including a golf course open to the public.
In the clubhouse restaurant you will be served an exquisite regional menu accompanied by organic wines produced at the vineyard you will later visit.
In the afternoon, our expert guides will be in charge of the visit to the cellar, taking you for a beautiful walk around the vineyards. You will learn how the wine is made and discover all of its secrets.
Last but not least, the wine-tasting where you will taste three products of an excellent quality with a cheese platter, before the return to Barcelona.
