What You Can Expect

Small-Group Catalonia Tour in Barcelona: Catalan Food and Human Tower Display

Flavour local wines and cavas at a family owned winery

Meet your tour guide and small group of seven people or fewer in central Barcelona. Set out to discover the delicious secrets of tapas and pica-pica in an informal dinner; vegetarian options are available.

Visit the most popular food market in Spain, stopping by local venues to learn about Spanish gastronomy. Taste a variety of tapas and 'pica pica,' which roughly translates to 'a little bit of this, a little bit of that.' Chat with your guide about Spanish culinary traditions as you sample foods like montaditoporró and buñuelos

Continue your local experience by watching the building human tower, or castell. The practice of building castells is a feat of strength and community with deep roots in Catalonian culture. Castells have recently been named one of the UNESCO Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. 

After watching the display, you can choose to try it for yourself with your small group. Don the traditional outfit, and with the help of an instructor, learn how best to build la pinya, or the base of the tower made from human bodies.

Your tour ends in central Barcelona after five hours; you'll walk away with a souvenir photo of your group's castell.
