Continue to Santa Caterina Market—a less-crowded alternative to La Boqueria Market—to learn about local produce before doing more tastings in the Born area, where one of the stops is to a shop that’s been open for more than 150 years. Then, head to Barcelona’s fisherman’s quarter to sip vermouth in a tapas bar before tucking into home-cooked paella. Your guide teaches you about traditions, like drinking from a porron, and festivals. The tour concludes here.

Hi there! Thanks so much for leaving a review. We really appreciate it. Jessica loves giving the Tapas, Taverns and History tour. She gets to talk about her city for a few hours! Hopefully she will be back in the Gotic quarter again soon, taking guests around its narrow streets. Hope you are safe and well! Regards, Owen
