Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions

Your private Montserrat tour & Penedès wine tasting begins with an early morning private chauffeur pickup allowing you to enjoy the solitude of the Montserrat Monastery.

From there your local guide will lead you on a captivating tour through the Basilica, stopping along the way to appreciate diverse facets that comprise its fascinating history. Revered by both locals and travelers for its mystical qualities, your direct access will allow you to admire the monastery in all its morning glory. One of the highlights of the tour includes the Virgin of Montserrat, also known as “La Moreneta” (the Black Madonna), who is known to perform miracles for believers who touch her hand and express their desires.

As you stroll through the complex, learn about the various architectural styles of the monastery which has grown greatly over the last 1,000 years. Be sure to take your camera with you because the views are absolutely spectacular and known as some of the best in Barcelona.


After your tour, you will have some free time to explore at your leisure. Feel free to take photos, venture higher in the mountains by taking a funicular ride, or visit the onsite museum for a quick look around. Later you will meet your guide to drive through the Cava wine hills, AKA the Penedes region.

Your guide will take you to a family-run vineyard where you will enjoy a tour before tasting three fantastic examples of Catalan wine. You will get a glimpse of local wine-making and learn the techniques behind the wine you are going to taste. You will get to try the speciality Cava, “Spanish champagne”, and other local wines. Then, enjoy a typical tapas lunch. After a delicious meal, you will begin your drive back in to Barcelona city.

  • Great day

    On our honeymoon in Paris, we dedicated a day to visit Montserrat with LivTours' private tour. Included in the tour was a chance to wine taste, which we thought was great fun! The accommodations were very comfortable and the guide was excellent and very warm and friendly. If you have the time, consider visiting Montserrat and booking it with this company!
