Barcelona: Montserrat Tour, Monastery & Optional Wine/Lunch

1. Barcelona: Montserrat Tour, Monastery & Optional Wine/Lunch

Experience an unforgettable guided group tour to Montserrat, Catalonia's most famous mountain range. Take in the beauty of its natural rolling landscape and discover the history and traditions of its medieval monastery. After your bus journey from Barcelona, board the cogwheel train up to the monastery and admire the beautiful nature and iconic multi-peaked mountain range of Montserrat. Once at the monastery, your guide will take you on a walking tour of the historical center of the complex.  Learn about the rich history of the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey, an 11th-century monastery that still functions to this day, with over 70 monks. Entry to the monastery is included in the tour price. Use the allotted free time to wander freely and visit the famous Black Madonna and see paintings by Picasso, El Greco, and Dali at the Montserrat Museum. During your free time, you can also ride the funicular train up the side of the mountain to get even better viewpoints of the monastery.  Travelers who booked the half-day tour option will return to Barcelona after the visit to Montserrat. If you chose a full-day tour option, you'll continue toward a beautiful boutique winery. Arrive at the winery and, depending on the food option you booked, enjoy a light tapas or multi-course lunch. Admire amazing views of the winery and Montserrat mountains as you feast on traditional foods of the region. After your meal, wander around the vineyards, learn about the wine-making process, and enjoy a wine tasting session, before traveling back to Barcelona.

What people are saying about Monistrol de Montserrat

Mariana was my tour guide. She greeted me warmly. Her English is very easy to understand, making it easy to follow the exciting stories, legends and jokes. The 1.5 hours of free time are tight, but still enough to do a few things and look around. The subsequent wine tasting with the tapas lunch were also a highlight. Nice winery with very nice rooms, perfect for a wine tasting. Afterwards there was still time to taste other wines. For the food you could indicate allergens/vegan/vegetarian before the start of the tour. Only some Spanish music at the tasting or at the meal was perhaps still missing and would improve the whole thing a bit. All in all very recommendable. I would do it again!

This tour was great! Both tour guides involved were so smart and had great personalities! We did the tour with lunch and wine tasting and I highly recommend it! We had a little less free time doing this but still had time to walk around the monastery, do a short hike, and some shopping before we left for wine tasting and lunch. Lunch was three courses and the food was delicious and filling. The wine tasting was fun and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour!

This was a great tour! It allows you to visit Montserrat with ease, skip the line to get into the Monastery and enjoy a nice wine and tapas experience after. The guides were very personable and informative.

Very beautiful basilica. We enjoyed the wonderful history Spain has to offer. I am glad we made the trip and enjoyed our tour guide, Carol.

My guide was Javi. He managed to list everyone’s mood with interesting info about the place and good quality humour. The tour was lovely!
