Your tour departs from central Barcelona, from which we will head for the village of Monistrol de Montserrat. From Monistrol we will take the “Cremallera de Montserrat”, a cogwheel train offering great views of the countryside and the mountain. Once at the Monastery your guides will then transmit their passion and knowledge of the landmark to you – history, legends and the importance of this site in the development of Catalonia. After walking through the monastery, you will have some free time for shopping at the Farmer’s Market or taking a few pictures at the Stairway to Heaven.
Oller del Mas
A visit and a wine tasting at Oller del Mas Cellar is included in both options. Located in a 10th century castle at the feet of Montserrat, this organic family-run winery is surely one of a kind. Your local guide will lead a visit to the vineyards, the old family cellar, and certain private areas of the castle. To end this perfect day, you will sample three château organic wines.
Local wine tasting and tapas
Lunch Option vs Tapas Option It is now time for food and wine! Only a short drive away awaits Oller del Mas Cellar, located in a 10th century castle. At this point the group will divide, depending on your booking choice: 1. If you want to enjoy a full meal like the locals do, we recommend choosing the lunch option, which includes a fabulous multi-course local meal accompanied by regional wine at a restaurant near the winery. The homemade, local cuisine will ensure a gastronomical adventure that contents every personal taste. Please note that we can cater for any dietary restriction. 2. If a full lunch is not a priority for you, then you may prefer the tapas option. In this case, you will enjoy a welcome drink with an artisanal cheese platter. After, a delicious local cold tapas lunch will be offered during the wine tasting at the winery. Any dietary restrictions are also catered for in this option.
