    What to Expect
    Spend the day exploring the history and winemaking of the region near Barcelona on this 10-hour, small-group excursion. Not only will you have a chance to enjoy the area's spectacular scenery, you'll also gain a newfound appreciation for its religious significance at Montserrat and its many years of winemaking traditions at a local winery.

    Leave Barcelona at 8:30am for a visit to Montserrat, a monastery that sits amongst the craggy mountains just outside of town. See the complex's famous Royal Basilica, which contains the 12th-century statue of the Black Virgin, a venerated icon. If you visit during the week, you'll also get to hear the angelic singing of La Escolania de Montserrat, one of the oldest children's choirs in Europe. During your visit you can also stop by the Museum of Monserrat to explore the site's history, or take a ride to the rack railway or cable car for sublime mountain views.

    During the second half of your day you'll head to Catalonia's Penedes region to learn about the area's vast wine industry. Stop by a winery, where you'll have a chance to view the vast wine cellars and taste some of the wineries' top-notch products. 

    Your tour ends back in Barcelona at around 7pm.

    Monserrat was lovely and the winery was wonderful. Why was it bad? The driver would not shut up for the whole trip. Every minute in the van he was talking about nothing anyone wanted to hear. Also, the constant jerking of stick shift gave me a sore neck like I haven't had
