This itinerary gives you the chance to visit three must-see visitor attractions in a day: Jean Leon Winery, Montserrat and the coastal town of Sitges.
You'll leave Barcelona en route for Montserrat
. Once you arrive, you'll be able to visit the basilica that is home to the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia, and visit the audiovisual gallery to find out how the site took shape. You'll be able to sample the typical liqueurs made by the monks at the monastery and you'll have three hours' free time to have lunch and visit the area at your own pace.
At Bodegas Jean Leon you'll take a guided tour and taste some of their wines
. At the winery they will also tell you some interesting anecdotes about its founder, Jean Leon, who was a friend and confidant of many Hollywood stars, as well as a pioneer in planting varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Chardonnay.
The tour ends in Sitges, one of the most beautiful seaside towns on the Catalan coast
. You'll visit its narrow streets and admire the whitewashed houses with your guide and explore the Indiano Trail which features the buildings associated with the Catalan families, known as indianos, who left the town in the 19th century to make their fortunes in the Americas. During your free time you'll be able to discover the beaches, food and shops in the town before setting off back to Barcelona.What does your booking include?
