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.
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.
Your tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

I am a big fan of booking full day/half day tours outside of the big cities when going in vacation. Although you can do it by yourself, it's better to have a guide with you who can answer all the questions. This was the case...More
