About
The Origins of Olive Oil

Barcelona to Tarragona

Barcelona, the great Mediterranean city, will be the starting point for this journey to Roman Tarragona. Along the way, we will encounter Montserrat, the most iconic mountain in Catalonia, with vineyards like beautiful gardens with views of the sea and precious agricultural heritage, built one stone at a time. There will be time to taste delicious wines and meet some friendly giants. All this to the soundtrack of a musical genius, cellist Pau Casals.

Itinerary

All year round

The streets of Picasso’s youth reveal an intimate version of Barcelona, featuring charming small businesses. A city that has always been linked to art, in all its forms. The day begins with some of the most beautiful modernist buildings in Europe and ends at Montserrat, Catalonia’s most iconic mountain.
Sunrise in Montserrat and walking the mountain in the early hours of the day is one of the most beautiful experiences of this section of the Grand Tour in Catalonia. The route continues towards Bages, a land of unique dry stone constructions. The landscape of Solsonés greets me with a misty morning. After visiting one of the Cities with Character, the route takes us to Penedès, where wine and Cava are made under two historic denominations of origin.

The day takes me to the waterfront vineyards, one of the landscapes that inspired and shaped the life of Pau Casals, the world-renowned musician who has delighted generations with his performance of the Cant dels Ocells. Santes Creus is one of the most important historic buildings in Catalonia. Starting in the lands of the Cistercians, secondary roads connect gems such as Montferri and Altafulla to end the day and the route at Part Alta, Tarragona.
