Barcelona – known for being an old Roman enclave, home to Antoni Gaudi’s famous Sagrada Familia, not to mention the world-renowned Barcelona FC, the Mobile World Congress, Summer Music Festivals, and trendy life!. But did you know that Catalan cuisine holds its own among the tastiest regions in Spain? That it is part of the Mediterranean gastronomy, one of the healthiest in the world? Or that Catalan people are more likely to pair cheese with a glass of chilled cava (the Spanish sparkling wine) than a slice of chorizo with Rioja Wine?
On our 3-hour walking food tour through The Gothic Quarter and La Barceloneta you’ll get to taste what makes this city’s gastronomy so special and unique within Spain. Through numerous foods and wine tastings at 5 authentic Bodegas (old taverns) and Tapas Bars, you’ll taste delicious tapas with different type of wines, immerse into the history and traditions of genuine places, get into a bunker and sample the most iconic Barceloneta tapa: Bomba; and you’ll master the art of fer vermut (the way locals socialize).
