One of the attractions of Barcelona is its traditional cooking. You haven’t been to Catalonia if you haven’t tasted its food. In order to make these wonderful recipes, restaurants need the highest-quality products, which brings us to the markets, the place of origin of every culinary experience.

You will not have to tip the guide, as the price you will pay for the tour already includes their work.

Our tour through the markets of Barcelona is one of the most enjoyable ways to get to know the city, but Barcelona is not a city you can get to know in one day, so let us recommend you some more tours to take on your holiday:: Gràcia district’s tour, Barceloneta’s tour, Poble Sec tour, etc.
