During this culinary and cultural day in Barcelona you will have the great opportunity to see some highlights of this European city full of energy, and we will introduce you to its rich and delightful gastronomy. You will be amazed.

13:00 - 17:00 hours. Cultural and tapas tour in the historical old quarter

Our meeting point will be Casa Battlo, an amazing Gaudi creation on Paseo de Gracia street, just in the center of Barcelona, where our guide will meet you. This morning we will go for a lovely walking tour along the magical medieval narrow streets of the Gothic old historic quarter, visiting the imposing cathedral and its environs which include the Romanesque church of Santa Llucia, the City Hall and more. Antique dealers, bookshops, restaurants, and unusual shops maintain the activity of this historical district.

During the walk, we will have a Tapas style lunch so you will learn about this famous Spanish way of enjoying small portions of many different specialities accompanied with wine or refreshing beer.. Snacking and drinking your way from bar to bar is incredibly Spanish, and can be lots of fun. Anything from Iberic cured ham and other catalan sausages, tomato bread, muscles with “vinagreta”, anchovies, shrimps stuffed in garlic sauce ….can be enjoyed as a tapa.

We will end up in a charming coffee bar to rest for a while before we head to our cooking class.

17:00 - 18:00 hours. Visit to the Boqueria Market

Situated in Las Ramblas, a famous cheerful pedestrian street with traditional shops, the fresh market of “la Boqueria” is one of the most spectacular and nicest food markets in Spain. It is famous for the quality and diversity of its produce which comes from around the world. The market is located on a site originally intended to be used as the courtyard of the church of Sant Josep. We will meet our chef to buy the ingredients for our cooking class.
