Full description
Enjoy a small-group day tour from Barcelona to Montserrat and the Penedès wine-growing region. The tour heads out from Plaça Catalunya for the 1-hour drive to Montserrat.

There will be plenty of free time to explore Montserrat on your own, but a visit to the sanctuary where the Moreneta is housed is a must! Pilgrims and other visitors have climbed the mountain to visit this sanctuary for nearly 1,000 years.

You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the fascinating Museum of Montserrat, and browse its collections that range from the Archaeology of the Biblical East to Modern Painting and Sculpture.

A highlight of visiting Montserrat is listening to the voices of Europe’s oldest children’s choir, La Escolania de Montserrat.

There are numerous walking and climbing trails on the mountain, ranging from easy strolls to serious hikes. Each trail offers a different perspective on the surrounding landscape, which is dotted with small chapels and hermitages. If you'd rather not walk at all, then another option is to take one of the2 rack railways or the cable car, which provide stunning views of the area as well.

After the morning in Montserrat, the tour heads to Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, situated in the Penedès wine-growing region, which is home to world-famous cava champagne and to the Codorníu Winery.

You’ll take a tour of the winery and see how this sparkling wine is produced, from the pressing of the grapes to fermentation in the vast cellars. No winery visit would be complete without a taste of the product, so at the end of the tour you'll have a chance to try some of the best cava the region produces.
