This tour from Barcelona combines history, culture, stunning views and delicious wine tasting all in one full day! Visit the incredible Montserrat Monastery and take a short hike along mountain trails, before exploring the wineries of El Penedès.
Depart from Barcelona and after a 45-minutes drive you will arrive at Montserrat. Montserrat translates as “sawed mountain” in Catalan, so named because of its multi-peaked, rocky mountain range. Perched on the edge of the mountain side, at an altitude of 720m above sea level is the Santa Maria de Montserrat Benedictine monastery. This impressive monastery is a popular pilgrimage site for Catholics, and the spiritual centre of Catalonia as it is home to the famous Black Madonna “La Moreneta” - patron saint of the Catalans. Discover its amazing history on a tour with your guide.
After the visit, go for a hike around Montserrat to enjoy the breathtaking views of the monastery and the mountain (approx 6.5km). The path can be steep so we recommend to wear suitable footwear. Back at the monastery there will be some free time to visit the farmers market or simply relax.
Continue your journey to El Penedès, one of the oldest wine-making regions in Europe. This region is the most important wine producing area around Barcelona and is best known for its production of Cava (sparkling wine).
You will stop at a family-owned organic winery for a guided visit to the cellar. Learn about their history and the wine making process. The visit concludes with a tasting of 3 wines from their range of white, red and sparkling wines, accompanied with some Catalan snacks.
Return to Barcelona around 5pm.
