Full description
In the words of Catalan writer Joan Perucho, "looking at the cuisines of the past, we often learn much about social history as well as politics". This quote best reflects the neighborhood of El Born. The eclectic streets, with their hidden alleyways, charming squares, museums and art galleries, were once home to Barcelona's aristocracy and the epicenter of trade in the city. They are now home to a thriving, creative community.

Be prepared for wonderful surprises, as you wander the neighborhood and discover the mix of new and ancient tastes. You will also learn about the sometimes quirky history of the area, a history that has left its mark on everything from the architecture and the names to the very bites you are about to savor.

In El Born, you will taste the history of the city through the different cuisines of the cultures that have left their mark, while still remaining true to Catalan character.
