Description B6 Montserrat and Cava Day Tour


On this popular Half-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 abbey perched on the mountainside at an altitude of 726m with over 1000 years of dramatic history. Montserrat mountain is the spiritual heart of Catalonia 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 an early morning 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). For private tours we can reduce the walk.

We leave Montserrat in the late morning and find ourselves the scenic wine country heading towards Barcelona's biggest wine region, El Penedès, where we visit the famous Cordoniu Cava Winery. This is the oldest family owned company in Spain and one of the oldest in the world - and was founded by Jaume Codorniu in 1551. On the tour of Codorníu we will learn how cava is made both in the old days and today. This spectacular tour takes us 36 metres below the surface into some of the world's longest man-made wine tunnels and cellars in the world. We end the tour with tasting of 2 cavas and a visit to the Codorníu shop.

After the Cordoniu winery visit we take you back to your hotel or apartment. (Guests should plan to have lunch in Barcelona after the tour ends).



Please note:

This tour does not include hearing Escolania de Montserrat boys choir sing.
