Get a taste for Barcelona like a true local thanks to this 3.5-hour food tour covering the city’s El Born and Barceloneta areas. Shop like a resident for cured meats and cheeses during a visit to the bustling Santa Caterina Market, enjoy tastings at more than a dozen authentic Catalan establishments, and dig into a home-cooked lunch of ‘fiduea’ prepared by a Barcelona local.
  • Get a taste of Barcelona like a true local on this culinary-focused food tour
  • Start the day with an included glass of cava (sparkling wine) and a sandwich
  • Explore the hidden gastronomic delights of Born and Barceloneta
  • Sample cured meats and cheeses at Santa Caterina Market
  • Enjoy an included lunch of 'fiduea' cooked by Barcelona local 'Mama Carmen'
  • Perfect experience for food lovers looking for a less-touristy visit to Barcelona
Meet your guide in central Barcelona in the morning, kicking off your culinary adventure with a mini "xuixo" pastry and coffee. Then head on over to a hidden deli run by a pair of siblings.

Once your mouth is watering, continue the gastronomic explorations by heading to Santa Caterina Market, a Barcelona food market similar to the famous La Boqueria but with far fewer tourists. Enjoy samples of cured meat and cheeses from the market vendors, and then head into the winding streets of the medieval Born area, where you’ll discover a number of lesser-known Barcelona food vendors, including one gourmet shop that’s existed for more than 150 years.

Leave the Born neighborhood and head to the seaside Barceloneta, where you’ll experience a typical locals-style lunch. Take a swig of vermouth inside a corner bodega (the original tapas bar) before heading to visit “Mama Carmen,” a famous local known for her home-cooked “fiduea” (Barcelona-style paella).

You’ll end the trip after your lunch with a full belly and a head full of new knowledge about the locals-only eating habits of this famous Catalan city.

Had a fantastic time on our Devour tour of Barcelona. A wonderful blend of history and flavor delivered with great passion and aplomb by our guide Katrina. Really enriched our stay in this marvelous city.
