La Boqueria Market
One of the best ways to get a brief introduction to a local cuisine in Spain is eating tapas—small sandwiches served in bars topped with a wide variety of local delicacies. It is easy to find a place that serves tapas (in fact, in some areas, it is hard to find one that doesn’t), but it might be a bit more tricky to find the really good ones. This experience offers you three stops to enjoy some of the best Barcelona has to offer with information about local food, customs, and visiting the city’s most famous market—La Boqueria.The Tapas Walking Experience starts close to La Rambla and takes about 2.5 hours. The guides are specialized in Catalan food, and at each stop, they will offer you useful information about your choices and the cuisine in general. Besides enjoying great food and good wine (or beer), you will also have the chance to admire the historical buildings of the Gothic Q uarter.The first stop will be La Boqueria, the bustling market that is considered as the best open food market of the world. It is a central spot for all the food lovers visiting Barcelona since a lot of restaurants are getting their high-quality ingredients from here.After La Boqueria, your guide will show you a number of century-old gourmet shops on the way to your next destination—a Mediterranean brasserie where you will try three montaditos (small sandwiches) accompanied by a glass of wine or beer.The last stop of the experience is a local restaurant where you will get four tapas of your choice from a vast selection and another glass of wine or beer. Here the guide will give you extended information about the wines, tapas, and the different cultures that shaped Catalan cuisine over the past millennium.
