Visiting Barcelona and want to immerse yourself in the local way of life? Then this guided walking tour of Barcelona's markets and the city's Gothic Quarter is the perfect fit for you!

Sample Catalan Culinary Delights at La Boquería

Start at the entrance of La Boquería, one of the oldest markets in Barcelona, dating back to the 13th century. Explore its lanes and alleys filled with varieties of fresh produce and food stalls serving tapas, seafood, and Iberian ham. Learn about Catalan cuisine and culinary traditions. Savor the spiciness of Catalan olives and satisfy your sweet tooth with popular flavors of the Spanish nougat confection, turrón.

Discover La Rambla and Barcelona's Gothic Quarters

Next, walk to the picturesque tree-lined La Rambla promenade. Saunter past aromatic flower shops, quaint outdoor cafes, and the colorful inlaid Miró Mosaic. Pose for the quintessential Barcelona shot before entering the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Time travel to the medieval era while strolling through cobblestone streets and mysterious alleys filled with quirky antique shops, cozy open-air cafés, and imposing Gothic architecture.

Learn about the History and Traditions of Catalonia

Continue onwards to the vibrant Santa Caterina Market, the first covered market in Barcelona. Marvel at its colorful, undulating roof and admire the food market that thrives on the former site of an old medieval convent. Stop at a Caganer shop and be surprised by one of Catalonia's bizarre sculptural traditions. Listen to the fascinating tales of the historic Santa Maria del Mar, funded and constructed by La Ribera's local sailors and merchants. End your Catalonian adventure at the Market of Born—a former market-turned-excavation site and museum that houses the remnants of the medieval Born neighborhood.
