Overview
Combining Montserrat Monastery with a winery visit for wine tastings is an unusual combination that’s difficult to arrange independently. This day trip makes it easy: with round-trip air-conditioned transport and a guided tour of Montserrat so you see and learn about all its highlights. Plus, your winery tour includes tastings, tapas, and dessert, so you don’t need to budget for lunch.
Highlights
  • Montserrat monastery and winery tour from Barcelona
  • Explore the mountain monastery with a guide to learn about its past
  • Great-value: Winery visit includes tour, tastings, tapas, and dessert
  • Group limited to 16 for a personalized atmosphere
What to Expect
Leave central Barcelona by air-conditioned vehicle and make the scenic journey to the Montserrat Monastery, a Benedictine abbey located high on Mt. Montserrat, just outside the city. On arrival, enjoy a guided tour as you learn how the monastery stands as a cornerstone of Catalan history and spirituality. Take in the basilica—home to the revered ‘Black Madonna’ statue—and the atrium, cloister, and main square. Afterward, continue to Oller de Mas, a winery set in a 10th-century castle. Stroll around the vineyards and delve into the wine-making process as you tour the barrel room and production areas. Finish with a tasting of quality wines served with an assortment of tapas and a dessert. As you taste and relax, learn the secrets behind each varietal from your host. After a day of sightseeing and wine, your experience concludes at the original departure point in Barcelona.

¡Hola! What a nice review!! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience! Pol will love to read how much you enjoyed his tour :) Montserrat and its monastery is an outstanding place and a symbol of the Catalan culture, but ending the tour with a wine experience is not a bad way to finish it, right? Castlexperience’s tours are designed to be dynamic, entertaining and relaxed. We believe it is very important to find the right balance between giving the right information and having fun to really enjoy a tour. And we count with the most knowledgeable and friendliest guides so… mission accomplished! We’re very happy to know you had such a great time in our tour! Many thanks for recommending us :)

Hello Lashae! It looks like you thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Marta will love to read about it :) Half day tours are the best option if you want to escape the city for a while but still be back in time to keep on touring around in the afternoon, or even the evening! As you rightly said, they include some free time in Montserrat and Oller del Mas after the guided visits. Especially in Montserrat, not as much as full day tours, but still more than enough to explore on your own and discover the beauty of this amazing mountain! And try the cheeses at the farmers’ market too, good point! Our favorite one is mató, did you taste it? Thank you very much for joining us and for your recommendation :)

Hi there!


 Thank you for your recommendation!! Adrián will love to see how much you enjoyed the tour :) Half day tours are a great option to escape the city for a while, but be back in the afternoon to keep on touring and visiting Barcelona! They really make you disconenct from the noisy and crowds for some hours, and get in touch with the most spiritual and natural side of the catalan countryside! All our tours, full days and half days, include some free time after the guided visit around the monastery. Half days offer 1-1.5 hours to explore the basilica, hike a bit, sample the farmers’ market and, of course, enjoy the views :) As we know not everyone shares the same interests when visiting a palce, we always make room for this free time so everyone can choose what to do according to their preferences. The visit to the cellar and vineyards is very informative regarding the unique history and tradition of the winery, and the particularities of this region and its soil, climate, varieties… But the coolest part is tasting all that information in the wine, right? The wine tasting consists on sampling three different wines fully produced (and even bottled) in the winery paired with some light tapas. We’re happy to see you enjoyed them! You’re very right, the tapas on half day tours are not meant to be a full meal, but a light lunch to go with the wines and enjoy the tasting. They are prepared with typical and local products that match very well with the wines :) It is great to know you thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience :)
