      About This Barcelona Tour

      As the center of the food scene and epicenter of Catalan gastronomy, the Boqueria Market offers a remarkable opportunity to experience the sights, smells, and tastes of gastronomic Barcelona. On this three hour food tour, you’ll explore the market and nearby specialty food shops, tracing the history of food in this culinary city. In the company of a chef or food writer, you’ll get a basic overview of regional Catalan gastronomy while tasting local specialties.

      Begin this experience at the former location of La Boqueria, which was founded in the 13th century, making it one of Europe’s oldest markets. As you travel towards the modern part of the market, your guide will discuss the long history of public markets in Barcelona. Once you arrive, venture into stands where fresh fish, shellfish, and an array of mollusks are arranged over beds of ice. During the tour, you’ll also stop to examine fresh wild mushrooms and inhale the salty aromas of cured ham and sausage. 

      As you continue to make your way through the market, your guide will explain the origin of Barcelona’s best dishes and its relation to Catalonia’s rich culinary history and diverse geography. Then, the final part of the tour will take you out of La Boqueria Market and into the stone streets of El Raval and the Gothic Quarter. As you stroll through this area, your guide will take you to select specialty food shops. Passing by several notable restaurants, you’ll pay particular attention to neighborhood establishments that specialize in “market cuisine” in order to highlight the difference between market and restaurant. Depending on the time of day, your tour may end at either Granja Viader, a local dairy that serves the afternoon cup of chocolate, or the famous Escriba bakery.
