New Tour – Montserrat Mountain and visit to Cava Winery – July 2018

Once again we are very pleased to announce a new tour that we now can offer.

This time we are combining an early morning visit to Montserrat Mountain and Monastery with a visit to the world famous Codorniu Cava Winery.

This tour has a very early pick-up at your hotel or apartment in Barcelona at 7AM – so you can enjoy visiting Montserrat Monastery before the crowds arrive and really appreciate why the monks have made this their home for a thousand years.

As the crowds start arriving we leave Montserrat and visit the world famous Cava Winery of the Codorniu family – one of the oldest family businesses in the world and featuring the longest man-made wine cellers in the world!.

You can find much more information about this spectacular new tour on our tour website.

Dali lived in his house in Port Lligat (or Port Ligat) from 1930 until 1982 and this is where he did his best work. Upon the death of his wife and muse Gala Dali, he moved to Castle Gala in Púbol, where she spent her final years. Púbol Castle is now also a house/museum.
