Our friendly local guide will pick you up in a comfortable minivan at your Barcelona accommodation and join you on an adventure deep into the Catalan heartland. On the ride over, your guide will share fascinating stories about Catalonia’s history and culture, introducing the sites you will visit on this tour.
The magical mountain of Montserrat is located 60 km northwest of Barcelona. It hovers 4,000 feet high over the spectacular landscape of Montserrat National Park. The massif itself is easily recognized by the “serrated” appearance of its skyline and the whimsical rounded shape of its peaks. The latter is the result of millions of years of erosion. Ascend to the top to discover the most mythical views of Catalonia’s landscape.
On Montserrat Mountain, 2,380 feet above sea level, sits the Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat. This beautiful structure, surrounded by nature, has served many as an authentic spiritual retreat for almost one thousand years. We will visit the basilica, home to the Virgin of Montserrat (the "Black Madonna"), also the patron saint of Catalonia. According to legend, the Virgin physically appeared here in the IX century, giving rise to the hermitage of Santa Maria. The Roman carving of the Black Madonna can be traced back to the XII century. The wooden statue is easily recognizable by her dark skin and the golden altar surrounding her.
After visiting the monastery we will tour its surroundings, taking a moment to enjoy the unparalleled views of this spectacular environment, which was declared a Natural Park in 1987. We will explore the Holy Cave, where the Virgin is said to have appeared, making it a popular destination for religious pilgrimage and prayer.
Finally, we will enjoy a performance by the La Escolania de Montserrat, one of the oldest boys´choirs in Europe. Listen to the angelic voices of the children, which light up this already magical place.
In the afternoon we will head to the Penedès region and stop at Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, the “capital of Cava.”
Cava is a Designation of Origin sparkling wine elaborated with a second fermentation inside the bottle, the well known champenoise fermentation. We locate the origin of cava in the second half of the XIX Century, though it has continued its expansion until it has become the most representative sector and one of the most international icons of Catalonia.
There you will visit a local Cava, where you will be able to taste the most international product of the region, the cava, a kind of sparkling wine. At the winery you will discover the process of creating this wonderful drink and end the day with a tasting of different varieties.
