What to expect

Your tour departs from central Barcelona, from which you will head for the village of Monistrol de Montserrat. From Monistrol you will take the “Cremallera de Montserrat”, a cogwheel train with great views of the countryside and the mountain.

Once at the Monastery, your guide will provide plenty of information about the location during the guided visit – history, legends and the importance of this site in the development of Catalonia. After walking through the monastery, and visiting a couple of viewpoints, you will get back to the bus.

It is now time for food and wine! Only a short drive away awaits Oller del Mas Cellar. Before visiting the winery, we will stop at Oller del Mas restaurant for a fabulous multi-course local meal accompanied by a regional wine. The homemade, local cuisine will ensure a gastronomical adventure that contents every personal taste. Please note that we can cater to any dietary restrictions. Located in a 10th-century castle at the feet of Montserrat, this organic family-run winery is surely one of a kind. After lunch, your local tour guide will lead a guided 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.
