Departure from Barcelona is at 8:30am in the heart of the city, Plaza Catalunya, and we'll head straight to Montserrat in a comfortable coach approximately an hour drive away. Once at the top, your guide will take you on a walking tour through the monastery explaining the geological formation of the mountain and the history of the virgin (Black Madonna). We'll visit the church where you can attend a mass and enjoy the beautiful interior design, and see the unique chapels accompanied by guide. You'll also have the opportunity to visit the museum which houses one the most incredible collections of art in Catalonia complete with sculptures, drawings, and paintings. Here, you'll see pieces from Picasso, Dali, Caravaggio, Monet, Sisley, Renoir, Rusiñol, Pisarro to name a few. You'll enjoy the stunning views and the unique landscape of the area and then we'll have time to sample and purchase the well-known cheeses and honey from Montserrat in the market. We'll continue on to a local restaurant where you'll have a marvelous three course meal taking pleasure in the exclusive gastronomy of the area, one of the most important appellations of origin in the world. Next, we'll board the coach and you'll have an unforgettable experience in a small production family-owned winery where you'll learn all about the process of wine production from the vineyards to the table. With your guide you'll listen to a specialized enologist who will immerse you in this magical world of wine. You'll taste different local grape varieties like Macabeu, Xerel·lo and Perellada amongst others from other countries. After the tour, we will bring you back to Barcelona and we'll drop you back off in Plaza Catalunya where we started our wonderful day.
