Upon arrival in the meeting point, you'll be introduced to your local guide and the rest of the group. When everyone is set, you'll depart to the Montserrat Monastery, located an hour away from central Barcelona.
Montserrat is a unique mountain in the world, certainly worth a visit if you are in the area. It is considered to be the cornerstone of the Catalan culture, history, nature, and spirituality. Your guide will provide plenty of information about it all during the guided visit. You'll see the atrium, where many events of the country’s history are depicted; the Basilica, inside of which sits the Black Madonna, and its outstanding façade; the 15th-century cloister; and the Santa Maria square. At the end of the guided visit, you'll have some free time (around half an hour) to browse the Monastery’s souvenir shop, get a cup of coffee, discover local cheese and honey from the Farmer’s Market, or soak in the magnificent views from the famous Stairway to Heaven.
After Montserrat, you'll head to a boutique winery, located at the feet of Montserrat. The half-hour drive from the monastery offers wonderful views of the mountain! You'll be able to explore this winery with your guide. During the wine tour, you'll visit the vineyards and the wine production area. The wine tasting will take place at the end of the visit. You'll be able to sample three local paired with a totally tasty cold tapas lunch with dessert.
