Description #B3 Montserrat and Wine Day Tour

Morning

On this popular Day Tour from Barcelona we will show you the magnificent beauty and rock formations of the UNESCO world heritage site Montserrat mountain, which is the stunning setting of the Montserrat basilica church and monastery perched on the mountainside at an altitude of 726m and which has over 1000 years of dramatic history. Montserrat mountain is the spiritual heart of Catalunya. It is one of Barcelona and Spain's best loved attractions venerated for its spirituality, breathtaking scenery and unique and unusual rock formations. Montserrat is home to the mythical 12th century Black Virgin "La Moreneta" sculpture and to an ancient order of Benedictine monks.


This tour begins with a scenic drive to the monastery ending on some winding mountain roads. Then we guide you through the Basilica and visit the Virgin of Montserrat sculpture and shrine. Afterwards we take you even higher on a mountain railway up to 1000m, where we enjoy spectacular views of the monastery and take a short walk on mountain paths in the Montserrat natural park with even more stunning views that enhance the spirituality of this sacred mountain.

 

Lunch
Lunch break in Penedes wine region of Barcelona. Meals are not included and guests can choose from various lunch options.

 

Afternoon
In the afternoon we are in the scenic wine country to Barcelona's biggest wine region, El Penedès, where we have lunch and visit the world famous Bodegas Torres vineyard. Torres Winery has been owned and operated by the Torres family since 1870. Torres Vineyard has won numerous wine awards and for the Best Wine Tour in Spain for their innovative use of visual effects to create an exceptional tour of a modern winery with rich traditions. After touring the vineyard you will enjoy a wine tasting of 2 glasses of popular Torres wines and at a small additional cost you can taste more Torres wines and Torres brandy. We finish with a visit to the fascinating Torres family wine museum and the Torres wine and gift shop. After the Torres winery visit we take you back to your hotel or apartment
