Activity Overview
Montserrat is the first stop, the residence of Our Lady of Montserrat, normally acknowledged as La Moreneta (the Dark One) owing to the dark shade of the statue. During Montserrat walking, your guide will inform you exciting facts about the area and why the rocky mountain and its beautiful monastery have been amongst Spain’s most significant pilgrimage spots ever since the 12th century. We will use the cable car and see the refuge from above, which has been around for 1000 years for pilgrims, who have climbed this impressive mountain. Discover the superb mountains of the Natural Park and enjoy the picturesque views. Go on with a tour of the Museum of Montserrat (own cost) and Royal Basilica and to study about Montserrat’s religious and cultural significance and see work of art from Picasso, Monet, and Dalí.

Afterward, rest with your group to enjoy a three-course traditional Catalan lunch of nearby grown products from a 16th-century farm, which were previously owned by Montserrat monastery’s monks. Delight in the lovely taste of local Catalan cookery next to the astonishing Mountain of Montserrat. Later, you will have the likelihood to visit the farm’s olive oil mill and visit the property at your leisure time.

Enjoy the excellent taste of local Catalan gastronomy, while sharing stories of your memorable walk along Montserrat and its fables. Before going backing to Barcelona, tour Penedès the headquarters of Cava (Catalan champagne). Stopover at a neighborhood winery and find out how the famed wine and cava are made, from the first grapes pressing to the fermentation in the massive span of cellars. Accompany this with a tasting session to perceive precisely why they have obtained such worldwide fame.

Our guide was punctual at our hotel. Schedule was just as planned. She explained us lots of interesting things about the Park and the life in the Monastery. We also had some time to explore around it by our selves. We really appreciated that…. Lunch was in a very old traditional house, were monks used to live. The best part of the tour: the wine tasting in this little winery. Amazing philosophy to ... more produce wine! We tried 6 different types! Thank you for such a complete day!
