Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Barcelona Gourmet Food and Santa Caterina Market Walking Tour

Enjoy the market

Take a deep dive into the food scene of Barcelona during this 2-hour walking excursion with tastings at some of the city's most famous markets and retailers. Whether you're looking for an introduction to the food culture of this Catalan capital, or hoping to take a deeper exploration of the city's top food markets and shops, you're sure to find something to like.

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.

This was a great tour that included a walking tour of Barcelona that the average tourist would not see unless guided. The Market was amazing with samples being provided by some of the businesses within the market. I would recommend this tour because it shows a side of Barcelona you would not normally see.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

This tour was fantastic. Our guide Marta was so knowledgeable not only about food but The history of Barccelona too. She was very patient and friendly. I would definitely book another tour through Viator it was of a high standard, well organised and value for money. A fabulous way to get to know a city.

This was a great way to learn about old and new food of Barcelona. Our tour guide, Carlos, was very informative. You could tell he enjoyed showing others around his city. Would recommend this tour for foodies or just if you'd like some food history. :

This tour was lots of fun. He made sure we were able to try several different foods including chocolate, candy and several other small bites. We ended with a taste of Ham that was quite fun. It was easy to hear him as he provided headphones for each person. This made the tour much better than other tours because Barcelona is loud and crowded as well as fun. Sometimes, if the group is big, it is hard to hear but that wasn't a problem with this group because of the headphones. We went back to several of the places he recommended. It was one of the favorite tours for my teenage daughter.

Foodies and history buffs unite for this fascinating morning tour. Yummy tastings combine with a knowledgeable and informative guide. And because ham deserves it we ended the morning at the ham museum with an Estrella beer or two on Las Ramblas. You can't do better than that right?

Our Guide Elizabeth was superb. She was fun, entertaining and showed a great love of her city and its food culture. I loved the small size of the group 6 which made it easy to hear everything she said. Altogether it was not only a wonderful and thorough tour, it was great fun too and for very little money.
