The story of cuisine in Barcelona
This tour has been designed to give you a broad overview of some of the most important dishes in Barcelona. Food and drink is a key part of socialising and the Spanish culture. The many plazas of the city are brimming with life as locals enjoy the warm weather, good company and tasty treats.
This tour will share the secret of how the locals do it! Where can you get the best cheese and Iberian hams? What do people drink mid-afternoon? How do they satisfy the end of the night sweet cravings? All of these questions will be answered on the tapas and Spanish flavours tour.
If you want to learn more, your guide will be happy to answer any questions you have and even suggest books you might want to read about the city!
Tapas in Barcelona
If you’ve spent any time in Spain, visited Spanish restaurants or just done your research on Spanish cuisine, you’ll know that “tapas” are small plates of food that are usually shared between a group of people.
We love this style of eating as it means that you get to taste so many different dishes and are unlikely to ever feel like you’re missing out. You know that feeling when you look over at your dining companion’s plate and wish you’d ordered that instead? Well, then tapas dining is for you!
We have chosen some of the best morsels from the menus of the locations and we believe they match up beautifully with the historical side of the tour.
A Tipple with your Tapas
Of course, it wouldn’t be a visit to Spain without trying some incredible local wines and learning about the Catalan drinking culture. If you don’t have time to try our Wine Tasting activity, then tasting the wines and learning a quick history of wine production in Spain on this food tour is the next best thing. From crisp whites to rich reds, bubbly cava and dark vermouth, we will showcase what the locals love to drink.
