This tour has it all: modernista architecture, wine tourism, dreamlike Mediterranean landscapes, beautiful shrines... A day to enjoy the iconic mountain of Montserrat, the modernista Codorníu winery and the outstanding Sagrada Família, Gaudí's unique unfinished work.
In the Penedès, one of Catalonia's most important wine-growing regions, you'll visit the Codorníu wineries
where you'll learn all about how cava is made. The modernista-style winery, set among the vines, is known as the Cathedral of Cava and was designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch. You'll also be able to sample their magnificent cava during the tour!.
Afterwards, we'll make our way to the mountain of Montserrat
. You sure to be amazed by its rounded peaks that point skywards!. The mountain is home to a Benedictine monastery founded more than 1,000 years ago which boasts breathtaking views of the Barcelona coastline... however, the most highly prized attraction is the Virgin of Montserrat, a 12th-century carving known as La Moreneta, or Black Madonna, the patron saint of Catalonia.
When you get back to Barcelona you'll take a guided tour of the Sagrada Família
, Gaudí's most unique work. You'll be able to visit the imposing basilica as well as the crypt where the architectural genius who wanted to bring the forms of nature to architecture is buried.
