You can't visit Barcelona without taking a short ride out to Montserrat, where you can enjoy spectacular views from the top of this mountain. If you're a wine lover, you can't travel to Spain without tasting the delicious wines from Codorniu winery in Sant Sadurni d'Anoia. This intimate, small group tour of Montserrat and Sant Sadurni d'Anoia is perfect for travelers who want to escape the action of Barcelona for a day and experience the picturesque Spanish countryside.
You will meet your guide at 9:00 a.m. at Placa Calunya. From there, you will make the hour journey to Montserrat to begin your Montserrat and Cava tour.
This small group tour offers a great deal of flexibility. When arriving in Montserrat, you will be given various options for how you want to spend your time there. One option you will have is to visit the 100 year - old sanctuary where the famous statue 'Morenata', or the Virgin of Montserrat, is housed. You can also visit the art collections at the Museum of Montserrat, where you can view impressive artwork spanning from prehistoric times all the way through modern artists. Additionally, you can listen to La Escolania de Montserrat, a famous European children's choir.
If none of these options appeal to you, you can also take a Montserrat walking tour. There are many walking tours of Montserrat, ranging from leisurely strolls to challenging hikes. If you prefer not to climb Montserrat, you can take a train or cable car to the top of the mountain. No matter how you reach the top of Montserrat Mountain, you will be sure to enjoy breathtaking views from this imposing mountain.
After a lovely morning in Montserrat, you will travel to Sant Sadurni d'Anoia, home to some of the most delicious Spanish wines. You will tour the underground cellars of Codorniu winery and learn how sparkling wine is produced, and you will be able to sample these delightful wines. After this full day immersion into the beauty in the Catalonian countryside, you will head back to Barcelona.
The trip to the winery was fantastic The people at the winery were very informative and the wines were good (not into the white wines) but as a whole it was a great experience. Make sure to get their info on how to order from your country of origin if interested
