Off the Beaten Track

It might sound strange, but you can still get “off the beaten track” even while in the centre of Barcelona. This tour specialises in showing you hidden spots in the most populated part of the city. While the centre has become overrun with chains and big companies, as happens with so many capital cities, we have tracked down the local businesses that make up the heart and soul of Barcelona.

Tastes and Tradition

Food, family and culture are inextricably linked in Barcelona and nowhere is this more apparent than in the markets. Markets are central to the Barcelona food scene as well as so important for the locals. With every neighbourhood sporting its own market, it can be hard to know which ones to visit.

The most famous market is La Boquería, conveniently located on the most famous street, Las Ramblas. Filled with great stalls and restaurants, it features heavily on lists about places to visit in Barcelona.

While locals still shop there, you need to visit a different neighbourhood market to get the real feel of how important these spots are in the day-to-day lives of Barcelona residents.

Your expert guide will explain all of this and more during this tour.

Santa Caterina Market

This market is in the area that’s locally known as El Born, the Medieval neighbourhood in Barcelona. Santa Caterina Market was part of a huge renovation project; the entire building was given a facelift and the roof was covered in rainbow-colored tiles. The architects were inspired by the art of Antoni Gaudí.

Inside the market, you will meet some of the vendors that keep the market running by selling brilliant local produce. You’ll also be trying delicious morsels directly from the market stalls! The sights, sounds, and smells of the market will be sure to spark your group’s creativity.

Local Shops

Once your guide has explained everything about market culture, you will head over to a shop that has been in business for more than a century and follow that up with a bakery visit. Both of these establishments are also family run!

The Food

We don’t want to give too much away but there will be more than six tastings across the four stops, including two inside the market – and a drink too! Please get in touch if your group has any allergies and dietary requirements and we will do our best to accommodate them.
