Why?

to discover local cuisine
to see another side of Barcelona

Catalan cuisine is rich in contrast, and exploring it opens up to you a whole world of Catalan experiences.

But it will take you further than just discovering the local culinary culture: you will dive into the local atmosphere, take a trip through hundred year old streets, learn about the history of the places you visit, and discover Barcelona with all 5 senses.

A gastronomic tour of Barcelona: The tourist office version

The gastronomic tour organised by the tourist office is really a top tip.

  • Your guide will accompany you for 2 hours of discovery of Catalan culinary identity, for less than €20, tasting included, and less than €7 for children between 4 and 12.

The tour includes:

Having tried it, I can tell you it’s really great! You learn a lot about Catalan cooking while walking through some of the most emblematic areas of the city. It’s a really original and well-organised tour that I can only recommend!

  • The tour takes place Monday to Friday at 10:30am

Gastronomic tour of Barcelona: José’s version

José’s version is different for the following reasons:

  • It’s a made-to-measure tour
  • It’s in Spanish, French or English
  • It lasts 3 hours
  • You visit the Boquería market instead of Santa Caterina
  • The tasting is a little different
  • The timings are more flexible

Route of the tour

The tour starts in the narrow streets around the Ramblas. You take a stroll through charming little shops where local people come to stock up on coffee, cheese, chocolate…

You continue by diving into the Boquería market, finding products that make up the Catalan culinary identity. Which is a great chance for the guide to give you his mother’s paella recipe…a real family secret!

Your tour will then take you to the Gothic neighbourhood, specifically Petritxol street. Its cafés specialising in hot chocolate and churros (granjas) and its art galleries have made it famous and very dear to the people of Barcelona.

 

Useful information

  • The tour lasts 3 hours. It costs around €195 for a group of 1-6 people. If there are more than 7 of you, contact us, for a more competitive price.
