Combine nature, history, culture and wine in one day!


Barcelona is a beautiful city that has so much to offer, but also the region is filled with amazing landscapes to discover and so much history and interesting places. Let me take you to see the mystical Montserrat and the surrounding wine country.

Montserrat is one of the most popular and unique treasures that Catalonia has to offer. It has come to symbolise one of the most important sites for religious pilgrimage in the world.

The Monastery's unique location at the heart of the mountain make it an ideal location if you are a nature lover. The flora and fauna of the natural park make the many walks breathtaken.

The Mediterranean wine region, Penedès, is most famous for the 'Cava' (Spanish sparkling wine!) but is also home to delicious reds and whites. We find historic wine estates, located in ''Masias'' (farmhouses) and others in stylish, modern properties.

Itinerary

The visit includes a tour of the monastery highlights and basilica, peculiar stories and legends about 'La Moreneta', a black Virgin Mary that the monks have kept in their temple for centuries. I will include a simple hike where we can see the amazing views. And of course there will be some time to discover the farmer's market with cheeses, honey and other local products.

We will combine this magical place with a visit to a vineyard in Penedès, the wine region of Catalonia. Learning about the steps of Spanish wine-making and a tasting of the final product.

You can eather choose a small family orientated bodega or we can visit one of the leaders in Cava making.
