B3 Montserrat & Wine Day Tour overview

Morning
On this popular Day Tour from Barcelona we show you the magnificent beauty and rock formations of the UNESCO world heritage site Montserrat mountain, which is also the stunning setting for the Montserrat basilica church and monastery perched on the mountainside at an altitude of 726m with over 1000 years of dramatic history. Montserrat mountain is the spiritual heart of Catalunya and is one of Barcelona and Spain's best loved attractions venerated for its spirituality, breathtaking scenery and unique rock formations. Montserrat is home to the mythical 12th century Black Virgin "La Moreneta" shrine 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. After breakfast we will walk up to St Michaels Cross with even more stunning views that enhance the spirituality of this sacred mountain (around 20 minutes walk each way with some steep inclines).

Lunch
Lunch is usually a light snack lunch at the Monastery.

Afternoon
In the afternoon we are in the scenic wine country to Barcelona's biggest wine region, El Penedès, where we visit the world famous Bodegas Torres vineyard who give us an exceptional tour of their modern winery with rich traditions. Torres Winery has been owned and operated by the Torres family since 1870. Torres Vineyard has won numerous wine awards and wine tour awards. 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
