If you want to enjoy a true gourmet experience that combines fine food art and history, this is the guided tour for you! This guided tour of Gràcia, one of Barcelona's most beautiful neighborhoods, is the perfect solution for those who want to know some of the finest delicacies of Spanish cuisine, while at the same time discovering the history of the city.
The tour will have 3 stops, each one highlighting a different aspect of Spanish food. At the first stop, you'll get to try pintxos - a typical dish from the Basque Country, then you'll have series of classic Catalan tapas, and at the last stop you will enjoy some vermut (Vermouth). On this tour, you'll also visit the famous Casa Vicens, Gaudí's first commissioned project.
Gràcia is one of the places with the largest gypsy community in Barcelona, where Catalan rumba was born during the Sixties. Catalan Rumba is without a doubt as much part of Catalan identity as the typical folk dance Sardana or Castellers, the human towers. Gràcia is a little bit outside the busiest part of the center and this allowed this neighborhood to maintain its traditions. It has a relaxed and bohemian atmosphere, and holds a village kind of feel.
