Start your Barcelona food walking excursion in the morning, leaving from central Barcelona near Plaça Sant Jaume. During your visit you'll head to the Sta Caterina market, which it takes its name from Convent of Santa Caterina. During the post-Civil War period, Santa Caterina became the main food supplier to the towns on the outskirts of Barcelona. People from Sant Adrià, Santa Coloma and Mataró came on the tram to buy food in this market in times of shortage. Today, the market is still worth a visit: the modern exterior ushers us into a traditional market with food stalls and restaurants which serve outstanding-quality produce.
Continue your tour with visits to local retailers who specialize in items like wine, chocolate and pastries, enjoying a sample or two along the way. Conclude your food exploration of Barcelona with an included Catalan tapa, beverage and jamon tasting at Jamon Experience at La Rambla.
