Montserrat and Cava trail day tour from Barcelona
Explore the heart of Catalunya on a day tour to the iconic Montserrat and it's Royal Basilica then enjoy sparkling wine in the rural cava cellars of the world famous cava producer, Codorniu. Select the perfect tour size for you, between private or group.
The day starts with a morning visit to Montserrat where you’ll explore the monastic centre of Catalonia. Visit the sanctuary that has been in use for almost 1000 years for those pilgrims and other visitors who have climbed this spectacular mountain, and see where the ‘Moreneta’ is housed. Then listen to one of Europe’s oldest children’s choirs, La Escolania de Montserrat at 1pm on weekdays and noon at the weekend.
You’ll also have time to explore the magnificent natural park and mountains with spectacular views over the plains of Catalonia.
After lunch, you’ll be transported through the back roads to the wine country, where you’ll visit the renowned local winery. The tour at Codorniu is a great chance to see exactly how the famous sparkling wine is produced, from the first pressing of the grapes to the second fermentation in the vast expanse of cellars.
Of course, no winery visit would be complete without a tasting! At the end of the tour you'll get the chance to try some of the best Cava the region produces.
