Overview
Add a culinary element to your tour of Montserrat on this day trip from Barcelona. Unlike other tours, this experience includes a Catalan lunch and a wine-and-cheese tasting session at Oller del Mas, a 10th-century castle set in a 1,000-acre (404-hectare) estate. Enjoy a combination of tours and free time at the monastery and basilica of Montserrat before exploring the cellars of the vineyard. Plus, receive personalized attention in a small-group setting.
Highlights
  • Feast all of the senses on a Montserrat tour with wine
  • Travel to Montserrat and the Oller del Mas wine estate with ease
  • Small-group tour limited to 16 people
  • Tuck into a multi-course lunch served with wine
What to Expect
Board an air-conditioned coach at a central Barcelona location, and begin the journey to Montserrat. During the ride, your guide provides an overview of the area’s religious significance. On arrival, take a guided tour of the basilica and monastery before enjoying free time to explore independently. Opt to visit the museum, or explore the Holy Cave before you reconvene with your guide. At the end of the visit, get the chance to attend a performance by l’Escolania de Montserrat, one of the oldest boys’ choirs in Europe. The next stop is the Oller del Mas estate winery, housed in a castle that dates back to the 10th century. Following a multi-course lunch inspired by Catalan classics, tour the cellars and vineyards before tasting local wine and cheese during a tasting session. * Please note that l'Escolania does not sing on Saturdays, school holidays, and several dates throughout the year. Your tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

¡Hola, Astrid! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your opinion on the tour! We sincerely love to get feedback from our customers because it is the best way to learn what we need to improve. We’re very happy to read how much you enjoyed Montserrat, the wine tasting and organisation of our tour. However, we’re sorry to see you didn’t fully enjoy every aspect of the tour. We take good note about the lunch! Truth is we usually get very good opinions about the menu, but we understand it is very hard to meet everyone’s expectations and we’re truly sorry this was your case. We will keep on working hard hand by hand with the restaurant staff to make sure we offer a great lunch in terms of tastiness and amount! Overall, we’re glad to see you had a great time in Montserrat and enjoyed your guide's explanations! Thank you very much for choosing our tours! We hope you had a great stay in Barcelona :)

¡Hola, Omar and Dona! Thank you for your kind words! Toni will love to read them :) He really is an amazing guide! We’re happy to read how intersting you found every part of the tour. You’re right, Montserrat is a very important place for the region! The history of the church and its Virgin, our patron saint, goes back to medieval times. And the presence of the Black Madonna made Montserrat a center of spirituality worshiped by many pilgrims and believers, as well as kings, queens and popes, since the very first moment she was found and until today! 

Finishing the tour with a visit to such a beautiful cellar and sampling some nice local wines is a great way to close the experience, don’t you think? The history of the cellar is quite interesting, the views are stunning, and the wines are delicious! We’re honestly honored to be part of your memories of Barcelona, especially in such a good way :) Thank you!
