Overview
If you really want to get to know Barcelona and Catalonia, visiting Montserrat is a must-do. This day tour combines a visit to this magical site with a wonderful food and wine experience. Riding a cogwheel train to the top of Montserrat mountain while admiring its spectacular views, discovering a winery inside a medieval castle, and tasting top-quality wines and gastronomy will be some of the highlights of your trip.
Highlights
  • Day trip to Montserrat from Barcelona with easy round-trip transport 
  • Guided tour shows you the best of Montserrat Monastery
  • Choice of multi-course lunch or tapas at a 10th-century winery
  • Enjoy three organic wine tastings and a winery tour 
  • Cogwheel train and all other transport to and from Barcelona included
What to Expect
Make your way to the departure point in central Barcelona, and then head to the Catalonian village of Monistrol de Montserrat. Board a cogwheel train for a ride to Montserrat Monastery, taking in views of the countryside as you ascend to the towering summit. 

Upon arrival, sample local food and drink such as coca de Montserrat (a sweet pastry) washed down with homemade liquors. Learn about the site’s religious history dating back to the 11th century and explore the grounds both with a guide and on your own.

Head back to the bus for a quick drive to a wine cellar located in a 10th-century castle. Opt for multi-course meal followed by a wine tasting and cheese platter, or choose to enjoy your wines paired with tapas (select upon booking). Both options include a tour of the cellar and three organic wines. 

This Montserrat tour concludes in Barcelona.
