Late-start Montserrat, Food & Wine

54,00€

Your tour departs from Plaza Cataluña, the main meeting point of the city, from which we will head for the small town of Monistrol de Montserrat.

Our local expert guides will liven up the bus ride with plenty of quality information about the origin and evolution of the history of Barcelona. From Monistrol you will ride the “Cremallera de Montserrat”, a cogwheel train with superb views of the countryside and the mountain.

Once at the Monastery, your local tour guide will pass on their passion and knowledge of the site to you – history, legends and importance of this location in the cultural development of Catalonia.

Some free time will be allowed to attend l’Escolania (the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe) taking a stroll through the monastery, walking to a few viewpoints, or even tasting some artisanal products from the local food market.

It is now time for food and wine! About 30 minutes drive from Montserrat awaits Oller del Mas Cellar restaurant and country-club, where you will relax while enjoying a fabulous three-course meal with local wine.

Afterwards, you will be led on an extended visit throughout the cellar, located inside the castle. The visit will allow you to discover how wine was made 600 years ago, and how tradition is combined with modern technologies nowadays.

Wine tasting will consist of three ecological château wines. Our guides will show you the key to identify a good wine through the sight, nose, and palate. You will enjoy your tapas lunch during the wine tasting, together with a cheese platter. Just before returning to Barcelona, you be able to take a stroll through the vineyards, enjoying the privileged landscape which surrounds Oller del Mas.
