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
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.

The trip to Monserrat was wonderful. One of the guides gave a great explanation while we were on our comfortable, air-conditioned bus, of what we would see at the monastery. My group’s main guide, Agnes, did a great job explaining our options for how to spend the ample free time

The sites were beautiful and our guide was fun and very informative. We were surprised how much there is to do and see at the monastery. The 2 hours of free time allotted to us was barely enough to walk the trail along the mountain side and there's still a museum and the

Hi there! Thank you for stopping by! Montserrat is a wonderful place. Some people spend day there and still not manage to do all the things that it has to offer.When in Montserrat, it is imoportant to prioritise. For that you have our local guides to present you with best options! :) As for wine... well, we all love it! We are sorry if you felt it was not enough as we provide the usual tasting portions, but, of course, when it is so good it is naural to want more :) Thank you so much for joining! best wishes,

Helloo! Thank you for your kind words!! Looks like you really enjoyed the tour :) that is great news! We believe that it is important to offer a good lunch to recharge the energy after visiting Montserrat! And it is not a good idea to drink wine with an empty stomach! That is why the full day tour offers a full meal in a restaurant between visiting Montserrat and the winery. The products of the meals are seasonable. so if you came some months from now, the menu would be different! Thank you so much for stopping by :)

Hola!! Dani will be very happy to read this review! Thank you so much for sharing it :) It is absolutely true, he is very passionate about our history and culture. If you have any question regarding Catalan history, he will definitely have the answer! Besides being a bit of a smart*ss (in the good sense of the word), he is always making jokes, so his tours are super easy to follow! We are glad to see you enjoyed this tour! Thank you for the recommendation! Best wishes,
