Our guide to Barcelona Tapas, Taverns & History Tour

A local family-owned tapas bar is your first stop on this exploration of Barcelona’s history. With strong ties to the local community, this place has been serving drinks for well over 150 years. Sip two Catalan aperitif classics – cava and vermouth – while sampling some delicious local fare to get things started.

Next, it’s time to dig deeper into the roots of Barcelona’s culture and heritage. You’ll take a 50-minute history walk through the narrow backstreets of the Gothic Quarter, and hear more about the city’s fascinating past. From Ancient Roman ruins to the political upheaval of the 20th century, the city will come to life  through stories told by your expert guide.

Afterwards, you’ll wind your way towards a true Barcelona institution. This is one of the city’s best-kept secrets and regularly visited by some of Spain's most celebrated chefs. For almost 80 years, this tapas bar has boasted the same menu consisting of just four standout dishes, proof that delicious food doesn’t need to be complicated.

To end the evening, you’ll visit one of the oldest bodegas in the Gothic Quarter for a sit-down meal of various Spanish specialties. In this former bohemian paradise, you’ll sample a range of family-style sharing plates accompanied by local red wine, ending the meal with a traditional Spanish dessert.
