Out of Town

Shore Excursion

Do you know that one of the most visited attractions out of the city is an Abbey located at the top of a 732 meters hill? This is one of the most actives religious communities and has a main role in the Catalan culture. I am talking about Montserrat.

We propose you a day out in the Natures, admiring some art and enriching your spirituality. In addition, you’ll learn about our traditions, history and gastronomy before heading towards a wine cellar located in the heart of Catalonia.

In this Montserrat Tour and Catalan wine you will:

  • Explore Montserrat: a Benedict Abbey, a Natural Park and the house of our patron saint.
  • Listen to the Escolania, one of the oldest choirs in Europe.
  • Visit a winemaker, whose wines are served in the best restaurants in Catalonia (and of course, you’ll taste them)
  • Explore the heart of Catalonia.

How does the Montserrat and Catalan Wine Tour work?

We will leave form your hotel/apartment/ship towards the Abbey of Montserrat. While approaching, you will be surprised by its sinuous shape, and once there, you will be amazed by the views. After a stroll discovering the history of the Abbey, we propose you to visit the Art Museum.

S-pec-ta-cu-lar. This is the word I hear the most from the guests when I leave the museum.

You will visit the basilica admiring its chapels,  and we will listen the Escolania, the oldest white voices choir in Europe.
After this first part of the visit, we will have lunch in Monistrol de Montserrat.

The second part of the visit is a wine tasting of the D.O. Bages. You’ll explore a fortified traditional house in a 80 hectares state. They produce organic wine and have received the Best State Wine price. We will walk around the cellar and your tastebuds will be carried away with their wines. Afterwards we will head back to Barcelona, where the tour ends.

What will I see in this Montserrat Tour from Barcelona?

Once we arrive, after just a short hour drive, the first thing you’ll enjoy are the amazing views while your private guide explain the meaning Montserrat in the Catalan culture. Then you will start a short stroll towards the Abbey while you learn about its history, discover the Escolania (the choir) and the oldest book edition house in Europe. Once you arrive to the Basilica, the guide will explain its architecture and give you some free time to explore it.
We propose a visit to the art museum in order for you to discover a fantastic art collection including Picasso, Degas, Sisley, Dalí, Miró and other local painters like Casas or Rusiñol.

Is this a chauffeured tour?

Yes. Actually it would take a while to reach Montserrat by public transportation and there is no connection between Montserrat and the winery. This is the reason why we propose this tour as a guided and chauffeured tour. As a result, you will enjoy every minute of your day out of town while we take care of all the logistics.

A preview of what awaits you…

Anna was great! She was informative without being boring, catered to our specific sight-seeing requests, and kept us fully enlightened and entertained. How this woman has so much knowledge, I don’t know! She literally had the answer to every single question we had. We stopped for a coffee mid-way as she could sense we were getting tired from walking and I enjoyed chatting to her socially. I 100% recommend her for anyone going to Barcelona!

Anne M.

We engaged Anna for a 3 days private tour in Barcelona. She is very dedicated and knowledgeable on every places of interest in Barcelona. When my child wasn’t feeling too well during the trip, she was flexible and accommodative to our last minute changes and requests. My family truly enjoyed our trip in Barcelona and had a wonderful time spent with Anna. If you are looking for customized private tour, Anna will be the best person to engage!!

Isabel N.

We concur with all the previous wonderful reviews of Anna and her team. We ended up having three tours with Anna and each one was different, informative and superb. If you would prefer to soak in the city and keep your nose out of the guide books and maps contact Barcelonina. Our trip to Spain had been derailed but once we contacted Jordi, everything started to improve. These folks have it together, make great suggestions on what to do and are patient with letting you make up your mind. Barcelona would not have been nearly as fascinating without them.
