More than many cities in Spain, Barcelona is a melting pot. Influenced over the years by cultures from within Spain and beyond, the dishes that we consider traditional today weren't always part of Barcelona's story. But without them the city wouldn't be the same. On this tour, we'll explore a mix of traditional businesses and the ones that are writing that story today, while we discover the real Barcelona through its food.

- Take an insider tour of a market that's always packed with locals (unlike the Boqueria!)
- Learn—by tasting!—how Barcelona's current traditional dishes came to be.
- See the local side of two essential Barcelona neighborhoods: el Born and Barceloneta.
- Try paella in one of Barcelona's most iconic spots, and learn to spot an authentic paella!
- Explore the bakeries, bodegas and food shops that are the heart of central Barcelona.
