  • Explore several markets on this walking tour of Barcelona.

  • Learn about the caganer, an odd Catalonian tradition that’s famous worldwide.

With your guide, you'll wander the ancient streets of the Barrio Gótico, learning about its history which dates back to Roman times.

Begin your tour at the Boqueria Market, rated one of the top food markets in the world. You’ll be amazed at the sheer variety and quantity of fresh and prepared food available here.

As your guide leads you through the patterned walkways, you’ll learn about Catalan food traditions and taste some traditional Catalan olives.

Exiting the Boqueria Market, you will find yourself at the scenic Ramblas promenade. Itself a former market, famous for its flower sellers, Ramblas today is a wonderful place to soak up the ambiance and snap a few photos as you stroll past its open-air cafes, fragrant flower stands and the colorful Miró mosaic.

Next, we’ll travel back in time to ancient Barcelona with a walk in the streets of the Gothic Quarter, full of antique stores and even an occasional antique market. Continue to the bustling Santa Caterina Market, the first covered market in Barcelona, with its undulating, brightly colored roof. Here, you'll pause to admire the ruins of a medieval monastery.

On your way to the last stop, you’ll also stop into a local caganer shop to discover the story of one of Catalonia’s strangest traditions. Marvel at the monumental church of Santa Maria del Mar, where you’ll hear the intriguing stories of La Ribera neighborhood sailors.

Your Barcelona markets tour ends at the sprawling Market of Born. Built as a market, this striking steel and glass structure now houses the remains of the Born neighborhood dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries.
