In a 3.5-hour walking tour, you will visit Santa Caterina Market, explore El Born & Barceloneta neighborhoods, and enjoy foods and drinks along the way. You will understand more about Barcelona’s dynamic food scene and taste the dishes that form part of the city’s story today. 


The tour starts with a visit to Santa Caterina Market, a local favorite with family-run stalls for decades! Observe locals doing shopping and understand more about their daily customs and traditions.


In the market, you will try several Spanish cheeses and cured meats including jamón ibérico at two stops.


Then head to one of the market’s most-loved bars that has been opened since the 1980s. Enjoy a glass of sparkling cava paired with next-level sandwiches featuring treats such as spinach tortilla and spicy Mallorcan sausage. A true Catalan way to start the day!


After visiting the market, we will explore the iconic El Born neighborhood. Especially you cannot miss the Santa Maria del Mar Church, the best example of Catalan Gothic architecture in the city. 


Stop at a classic bakeries since mid-19th century for the best croissants of this side of the Pyrenees. Next, at one of Barcelona’s oldest specialty shops – one of the last of its kind, you will taste three of the shop’s star products.


After a morning at the El Born neighborhood, it’s time to head towards the fishermen’s district Barceloneta. Visit a local bodega for the Spanish aperitif – a glass of vermouth with Barcelona’s favorite tapa: the bomba (deep fried potato ball filled with meat). This dish is considered by locals to be the only tapa ever invented in Barcelona. 


Finally, we will finish strong with a traditional Spanish lunch. At a restaurant since the 1950s in Barceloneta, some of the best homemade seafood paella in town paired with local wine are waiting for you.
