Visit Montserrat with a dose of culture

In addition, next to the famous monastery are the modernist rooms of Puig and Cadafalch, where you will see the Catalan modernist art in all its glory.
Horse riding in Collserola
Collserola is the closest mountain to Barcelona and where one of the most beautiful views of the city can be found. The equestrian centres in Sant Cugat del Vallés offer horseback riding along the dirt roads through the mountains. Don’t miss it.
Flying over the wine region in a balloon
The landscape of the vineyard can not be more spectacular than seen from the heights in a hot air balloon. The Penedès region offers unique views now in spring, when the vines are in flowering season and start to be greener. You can book these tours at companies such as Globo Kontiki.
