The Montserrat Mountain is where culture, spirituality and a unique natural environment get together to offer you the most popular shore excursion from Barcelona. Within one hour distance from Barcelona you can visit a place where one of the oldest and most famous monasteries in Europe is settled at a stunning height of 726m (451 Miles). The monastery is a Benedictine Abbey that has been active for almost 1000 years since its foundation in the year 1025. A visit to this sancionairy will give you the opportunity to do a small hike, visit the monastry, or just simply enjoy the amazing views provided by the mountain.
Nearby the Montserrat Mountain are the Vinyards of the Penedes region. Known like the Toscana of Catalonia. The stunning environment creates an idyllic location for Catalonia’s best wines and cavas (Catalan Champaign). It is the cava that is most known from this region. The best way to get to know this lovely treat is by joining a guided tour through the vineyards and a visit to the Bodegas, of course celebrated with a glass of Cava.
