Barcelona Foodie Adventure

Everyone should visit Barcelona. A hub of culture, food, art, and history, it is simply one of the best and most unique destinations for a cooking vacation in Spain. From a gastronomic standpoint, whether you envision a culinary tour with a tapas walk through the old Gothic quarter, a Michelin-star restaurant experience, or a visit to one of the city’s fabulous food markets, you will have a first-class food experience. And don’t forget the drinks! The area has become a top wine-producing region in the past decades, but also offers amazing craft vermut, beer, sangria, and cocktails.

Barcelona is culturally fascinating. Founded by the Romans over two thousand years ago, you can trace the history of it through the middle ages and into the modern era, represented by such amazing sites as the gothic Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar to the Guadian masterpiece La Sagrada Familia (slated for completion in 2026). As capital of the region of Catalonia, Barcelona is the cradle of Catalonian culture, including art, food, and language, all of which they are proud to share with foreign visitors. Barcelona is an indelibly friendly place, where the locals are used to rubbing elbows with culinary travelers there to experience all this fabulous destination has to offer.
